Arulmigu Brahmapureeswarar Temple Tirupattur

Mythological 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. After loosing his fifth head and all his powers, Lord Brahma realized his mistake since his privileged duty of creation was affected and so worshipped Lord Shiva at various places. During the course of His pilgrimage, Lord Brahma visited Thirupattur and worshipped Lord Shiva with a Shiva Lingam under a Magizha tree with water from the nearby tank, now called Brahma Theertham. Brahmma got the creation rights from Lord Shiva. With a view to give Brahmma equal status, Lord Shiva gave him five heads as He had. Brahmma became proud of this position. Shiva took off one head. Brahmma also lost his creation job. Brhamma sought relief and apologized for his folly. Lord Shiva advised Brahmma to go to Tirupattur on Earth and worship Him with 12 Lingas (Dwadasalingas) and offered relief. As Lord Shiva changed Brahmma’s own bad destiny, he was advised to so in the case of devotees. As Brahmma worshipped Shiva here, the Lord is named Brahmapureeswarar. Mother Goddess is named Brahmmanayaki or Brahmma Sampath Gouri.

The temple has special shrines for Lord Jupiter, Lord Brahmma, Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva. Lord Vishnu appears in Narasimha form. People go round the temple on the ‘Guru Brahmma-Guru Vishnu’ mantra principle. This is a rare form in the temple. In the entrance hall, the statue of Sarabeswara quelling the fury of Narasimha is splendidly sculpted. The very stepping into the temple ensures all prosperity to the devotee.Brahmma appears with turmeric dressing on all Thursdays. Brhamma is the authority for the Jupiter planet. It is the general belief of the people that the aspect of Brahmma would fall only on such persons whose bad destinies would change for good. It is said that those with lesser sins and the devotees would have their fate corrected.
