Brahmapureeswarar Temple History
At one point, Lord Brahma became proud that there is no one who is superior to him in this world because he himself is conquering this world. When Lord Shiva came to know this, he condemned the fifth head of Brahma through Veerabhadra, who was born from his element. Moreover, he curses Lord Brahma to remove the quality of creating the world.
Lord Brahma, who lost his pride, installed 12 Shivlingas where the Tirupattur Brahma Temple is now and worshiped Lord Shiva there. That is why the place where this brahma kovil tirupattur is located is called Brahmapuri. Lord Shiva, who was pleased with the worship of Lord Brahma and became pacified, appeared to Brahma along with Goddess Parvati. Moreover, he again gave Brahma the power to gather. He also tells you to visit this temple and change the inscriptions of those who have worshiped with him. Lord Shiva orders Brahma to have that letter so that they will live happily ever after. Agreeing to this, Brahma stays here and worships the idol of Brahma here. Moreover, that Lord Shiva appears here as Swayambhu. Due to this, Lord Shiva is also worshiped here.
These 12 Shiva temples comprising the Brahmapuriswara temple complex are:
Shri Pajamalai Nathar
Shri Patala Eshwarar
Shri Manduga Nathar
Shri Kailasa Nathar
