overall the temple was very nice.... temple architecture is very good. buy the offerings for the temple from inside the temple only to avoid being coned. or carry your own flowers etc. the temple closes at 8 in evening. travel by auto to avoid waste of time in parking / searching as some temples are in very much interiors

This is one of the very few temple for brahma. It is a very small temple which is an hour from tiruchi. There is a believe that visiting this temple and placing your horoscope at brahma feet will change your luck for the better. Before entering the temple one is suppose to light 36 oil lamps and place it in... More

The priest told us that there are only 2 temples dedicated to Bramha in Tamil Nadu. One in Trichy and one in Kumbakonam. We rightly reached there for the curtain closing time- the last Pooja at the temple at 8.00.p.m A very small temple compared to the other temples in Kumbakonam. Thimurthis are housed in this temple and Brahma is... More

I had heard of one temple at Pushkar. This is in a small by lane. The story [ sthala purana ] about this temple is... More

Temples of Brahma are generally very rare to find. This temple is especially wonderful during Navratri, when many different Alankars are portrayed.
