Temple History : It is believed that Lord Brahma at Thirupattur is so powerful the he can change the fate his devotees. As per mythology Brahma is the creator of living beings. Once he had the egoistic thought that him and Shiva both have five heads, so both must be equals. Lord Shiva decided to teach Brahma a lesson. He removed Brahma's fifth head which gives Brahma the power of creation. Brahma realized his mistake and observed penance here to twelve different Shiva lingams to get back his lost powers. Lord Shiva felt elated with the pooja of Brahma and gave him back the powers of creation. He also gave the power to change the fate of devotees who worship here. Hence the Brahma here is considered to be the one who can change what is written one’s head (fate). If devotees worship at this temple they are believed to get relief from all kinds of Dosha. First they need to worship Shiva, Brahma and then the Goddess Brahmanayagi. Devotees are given to light 36 ghee lamps and perform 9 rounds of the temple in order to get rid of their problems.
