On my Visit to Brahmapureeswarar Temple, Thirupattur (Trichy Dist, Tamilnadu)
Temples for Brahma are vey rarely seen. This temple of Brahma is located very near to Srirangam at nearly 35kms. People believe that their destiny will become better by having darshan of Lord Brahma here. This temple is more than one thousand years old. According to legends, Lord Brahma thought Himself superior to Lord Shiva and felt very proud of His creative powers. Lord Shiva cut off Brahma’s fifth head and cursed him to lose His powers of creation. Brahma realized His mistake and went on a pilgrimage to various Shiva temples. He came to this temple worshipped and did penance, On Parvati’s request, Lord Shiva appeared and liberated Him from the curse. He also said that Brahma would have a separate shrine here and devotees would first take His darshan before worshipping Shiva. Since Brahma had His destiny re-written here, He should also re-write the destiny of devotees who visit His shrine. Hence Lord Shiva in this temple is called Brahmapureeswara and His consort is called Brahma Sampathnayaki as She has helped Lord Brahma in getting back His lost wealth and creative powers. Lord Brahmapureeswarar is a Swayambhu Lingam.

The idol of Brahma is nearly six-feet tall and is seen seated in a meditative pose on a lotus. The idol of Brahma is coated with turmeric. The shrine of Dakshinamurty is seen next to that Lord Brahma. Adjacent to the temple, there is a garden with twelve lingams in separate shrines around a pond “Brahma Theertham”. Brahma installed these twelve lingams here. One can also see here the grave of sage Patanjali who attained Samadhi through Yogic meditation. This temple has a five-tiered Rajagopuram on the east side. The Veda mandapam at the entrance has a dwajastahmbam and Nandi statue.

The main enclosure of Brahmapureeswarar lingam in the sanctum is surrounded by seven gateways each representing a day of the week. Abhishekam to Lord Brahma is at 6.00 a.m. on Thursdays and at 8.00 a.m. on other days of the week. A ten-day festival is celebrated in the month Panguni. Full-moon days and on the day of Satabhisha (Sadayam) Nakshatra are auspicious days to worship Lord Brahma. Mondays and Thursdays are favorable days for visiting this temple. The temple timings are from 7.00 a.m. to 12.00 p.m and from 4.00 p.m. to 8.00 p.m. Just one km from this place is the Kailasanathar temple where Sage Vyaghrapada attained Jeevasamadhi.

The eighth century saint Sundarar praised about this temple in his hymns. Chola kings constructed the oldest parts in the 9th century. Later expansions were done by later kings like Nayak kings. People believe that a visit to this temple provides good health and bestows immense peace to their ancestors. Other deities in this temple complex are: seven Vinayak shrines, Lord Subrahmanya, Lord Dakshinamurti, Sapta Matrikas, Sri Gaja Lakshmi, Sri Chandikeswarar, Lord Brihaspati and Nava Grahas. Here The devotees are asked to stand in front of Brahma instead of on either side as it is believed that Brahma would bring changes in the fate of devotees. Sunlight falls on Brahmapureswarar Lingam for three days in a year on 15th, 16th and 17th day of the Tamil month of Panguni(March-April). People visit this temple to seek good marriage alliance, or to solve their marital problems and have good progeny.

The garden area and the pond look shabby and untidy. Improvements have to be made. The statue of Brahma also is slightly damaged and the paint id fading off. So proper maintenance of the temple is necessary. The temple history and labels may be written in English along with Tamil for the benefit of non-Tamil pilgrims. The importance of this unique temple may be given wide publicity through media and sale of devotional books.

This is a one of a kind temple of Chaturmukha Brahma, who did penance here with 12 different lingams. Brahmaji's idol is so serene and beautiful. Also has the samadhi of Guru Patanjali. The meditative vibrations at this temple are on a different level.

I wanted to visit this Temple and spent a lot of time searching for a Bus route. I found some helpful blogs on the web which helped me visit the temple, so here is something that could be of use.

There are plenty of buses plying on the Trichy - Perambalur highway so relax, you will not find it difficult at all to find buses.

From Trichy, there is a local brown bus 98A that drops you right in front of this temple (fare Rs.20). There is a bus at 7:15 a.m. from Chatiram Bus Stand (the cluster that attends to Samayapuram route); travel time is about 90 minutes. Buses are spaced at roughly one hour frequency.

If the time does not suit you, then go to the Perambalur cluster (just next to Samayapuram cluster). you have buses every 15-20 minutes to Perambalur. You have to buy a ticket (fare Rs.25) for Tirupattur cut (also called Siruganur bus stop) right on the highway sidings. From that stop walk about 50 metres into the Tirupattur cut (there are prominent signages on the highway siding itself showing the direction to temple). You will have share taxis waiting for passengers. You will have to wait for accumulating the seating capacity. If you wish to hire your own, its much easier at Rs.150 (for 8 PAX vehicle). Its only Rs.20 if you have waiting time at hand.

On the way back, you can find buses at one hour frequency outside the temple but there is no time table displayed. Therefore it is easier to hire / share a Taxi to the highway siding and walk cross the highway to the Trichy side where there is proper Bus shelter and buses every minute to Trichy.

I hope this helps.

The temple itself is grandiose and an excellent place to visit for architecture buffs but the loud crowds, really badly maintained temple grounds further made dirty by the said crowds takes charm out of the temple visit. there is no serenity, no sense of spirituality that settles over you. Simply visit as a tourist spot.

This Temple is situated in a small village called Thirupatoor, which is at a distance of about 42 kms from Trichy..

You have to go in Trichy - Chennai highway for 42 kms and then take a left cut to reach this village..
Lord Brahma was cursed by Lord Shiva for His Supremacy Behaviour and neglecting Shiva and Lord Vishnu..

so, Lord Brahma came to earth adn worshipped Lord Shiva in many places..
When he came here, he elt peace and so he installed 12 lingaas and started a deep penance and meditated hard to get the good will of lord Shiva..
Pleased by Lord Brahmas Penance, Lord Shiva Gave him back his power of creation and releived lord Brahma from his curse..

so, it is beleived that those who suffer a lot in their ;ife should visit this temple atleast once and worship lord Brahma. It will change their life to a good way..

The temple complex is huge with lot of people coming from all over tamilnadu..
Some are Coming from other states also..

If you are thinking that you are struggling a lot in your life ,in spite of all your efforts,
Then You are asked to visit this temple with your horoscope and make your prayers here..
