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. Since the fate of Lord Brahma, the Creator, Himself was changed by Lord Shiva at Tirupattur, one can expect a turning point in life by praying at this temple.

The temple also boasts of a 150-year old tree that is believed to have been planted by siddhas. Siddhas had the power to leave their bodies and enter the trees as they wish. They are immortal. They also have the uncanny ability of manifesting themselves by entering human bodies. This temple also has lakes (called as theerthams) like Brahma theertham, Bakula theertham (which is equivalent to Ganga in its sanctity). The water from the Brahma theertham is used to perform abhishekas on Lord Brahma.

Brahma is having a separate shrine sitting in the Padmasana posture and it is a very tall Murthy. There are seven Vinayakars in this temple which is also having seven entrances, either signifying seven days or saptha mathas! In the Tamil month of Panguni (Mar-Apr), the rays of the Sun fall on the Lord. This is one of the places (there are ten such claims!) where Patanjali Rishi had attained Jeevasamadhi. It is believed that he lives in the tomb and writes Yoga Sutras. Brahma is given a special turmeric dressing on Thursdays. The Brahma worship is complete with 36 lamps (representing 27 stars and 9 planets) and 108 tamarind rice balls and the devotee has to go around 9 times.

The most striking aspect about this shrine is that anyone who desires to change his destiny by the grace of Lord Brahma will voluntarily find his way into this shrine. This is what is so unique about this shrine. You may be either guided by your instinct or you may be guided by your relatives or guru. But when the time is right, you will be informed about it. If a change in your destiny is around the corner, you will be propelled to visit this shrine on your own. The shrine of Patanjali Guru is located in the Brahma temple to the South. He is the same Patanjali Guru who gave this world the gift of “yoga”. He is supposed to be the one who is omnipresent and omnipotent in this shrine. He offers his prayers to Lord Shiva and Lord Brahma and thus anyone who prays to him gets peace of mind.
