Brahmapureeswarar Temple here worshippers believe that a person can change his fate by seeking the blessings of Lord Brahma at Sri Brahmapureeswarar Temple, 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. Having cut off Lord Brahma’s 5th head, Lord Shiva got the Brahmaharthi Dhosham, and the plucked head of Brahma stuck to his palm. Lord Shiva started out on a pilgrimage to liberate Himself from the curse by begging for food with Lord Brahma’s skull as the begging vessel. But whatever food was put into the vessel immediately disappeared. It was at Bitchandar Koil, that Lord Perumal requested Devi Lakshmi, as Poornavalli Thayar to offer food to Lord Shiva. Devi Lakshmi filled the vessel with food to end Lord Shiva’s hunger. However, Lord Brahma’s skull was still stuck to Lord Shiva’s palm. At the behest of Vishnu, Shiva bathed at Thirukandiyur and prayed to Goddess Kamalavalli and Lord Vishnu. It was at Thirukandiyur that Lord Shiva finally attained salvation and got rid of the stuck head. The water tank in the Temple is hence referred to as Kapaala Theertham. Likewise, 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 [Sri Brahmapureeswarar Presiding Deity Sri Pazhamalai Nathar, Sri Pathala Eswarar, Sri Thayumanavar, Sri Manduga Nathar, Sri Ekambareswarar, Sri Arunachaleswarar, Sri Kailasa Nathar, Sri Jambukeshwarar, Sri Kalathi Nathar, Sri Sabthagereswarar, Sri Sudharaneswarar] 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. Having set out on a long pilgrimage, Lord Brahma had lost his complexion and good appearance. Devi Parvathi blessed Lord Brahma, and gave Him back all His sheen. Hence the Devi is venerated as Devi Brahma Sampath Gowri – The one who gave Lord Brahma’s wealth back. Since the fate of Lord Brahma, the Creator, Himself was changed by Lord Shiva at Thirupattur, one can expect a turning point in life by praying at this temple.
