Temple Legend

Mythological references say that Lord Brahma had a great pride that He was the ultimate God as He was the Creator. This overwhelming pride provoked Lord Shiva and destroyed the Fifth Head of Lord Brahma and cursed Him that He would lose all His power of Creation. Lord Brahma to get relief from this curse took a pilgrimage to all Shiva temples. During this pilgrimage Lord Brahma visited Brahmapureswarar Temple and installed 12 Shiva lingams around the shrine to perform Shiva Pooja.

Goddess Parvathi pleased by Lord Brahma’s prayers appealed to Lord Shiva to give him Darshan. Lord Shiva gave Brahma Darshan under the Magizha tree and liberated Him from the curse and gave back His power and responsibility of creation of the Universe. He also blessed Lord Brahma that He would have a separate shrine at this temple and since His destiny was rewritten here, he could rewrite the destiny of His devotees also.
