Religious Site Tourist Spot
The Brahmapureeswarar Temple is a Hindu Temple located in Thirupattur near Trichy, India. Worshippers believe that a person can change his fate by seeking the blessings of Lord Brahma at Sri Brahmapureeswarar Temple, Tirupattur.HistoryMythological references recount Lord Brahma’s overwhelming pride as the Creator of the Universe. Lord Brahma felt that He was more prevailing than Lord Shiva – since He had the supremacy of creation.This sense of pride provoked Lord Shiva, who destroyed Lord Brahma’s Fifth Head, and also cursed Him that He would lose His power of creation.To relieve himself of this curse, Lord Brahma started out on a pilgrimage of Lord Shiva Temples.During the course of His pilgrimage, Lord Brahma also visited this temple and installed 12 Shiva Lingams around Brahmapureeswarar and worshipped Lord Shiva here for a considerable time.Being moved by Lord Brahma's prayers, Lord Shiva, on Devi Parvathi’s appeal, gave him Darshan under the Magizha tree and liberated Him from His curse. Lord Shiva also restored the power and responsibility of creation to Lord Brahma.Lord Shiva also blessed Lord Brahma that He would have a separate shrine at this temple. He also advised Lord Brahma that since Brahma himself had His destiny rewritten here; He should rewrite the destiny of His devotees visiting this temple.

  • It's very nice temple, today my first visit. The temple to highways 5km.. Auto costs high for the 5kms, Up and down they ask 200rs.. Bus will get frequently.. Otherwise nice devotional trip..
  • Great temple , which is more than 1000 years old. Temple is open between 9-12 in the morning and opens 4 pm in the evening. Better to go with your own vehicle. Public transport not good.
  • Very oldest temple. Main God in this temple is lord Brahmma. People use to carry their horoscope and keep under the lords leg. It has some belief that their fate can be rewritten.. only drawback is public transport facility. Know the bus timings in advance and plan your travel. If you have your own vehicle, it's well and good.
  • As in other many temples, here also parking is at open place. The department should plant trees and maintain
  • Bramma temple is the highlight and you have to visit on thursday for changing your bad fate into good.
