  Realizing their wishes, devotees perform Abishek and archanas to Lord and Mother offering Vastras. They also offer Sandanakappu-sandal paste. 
 Greatness Of Temple:

Aadam means that which existed first.  Of the 27 stars, Uthiradam is the seniormost star.  Hence, all deities of other 26 stars perform Padapuja-worshipping the feet of  Poongudiyal heading the Uthiradam star.  The starrers are advised to pray here on these days.  Special abisheks are performed to Lord Shiva.


Special pujas are performed to Lord Shiva on Poornima days-full moon days.  Panchamurthis are taken procession this day.  Also Homas are performed early in the morning.  The wedding festival is celebrated in this temple, the same day when Meenakshi Kalyanam is celebrated in Madurai.  On Margazhi Tiruvadhirai day pujas are performed with heaps of flowers at night.  This is a temple with five tier tower.  The tank is opposite the temple.


Lord Nataraja graces from a separate shrine as if readying Himself for a dance dressing up His Hair.  Pujas are performed to Lord Bhairava on Ashtami falling in new moon fortnight. Special pujas are performed to Lingodhbava behind the Shiva shrine on Karthika day and on third part of the night of Shivrathri.

  Temple History:

According to scriptures, Brahamma had five heads as and equal to Lord Shiva.  Since Brhamma was also handling the Creation, He thought that He was superior to Lord Shiva.  To teach Him a lesson, Lord Shiva took off one of Brahamma’s head.  Having committed wrong to Lord Shiva, Brahmma wandered to all Shiva temples for remedy including this temple.  As Brahmma worshipped Shiva here, the Lord is praised as Brahmmapureeswara.  Mother is praised as Brahmmavidyambikai and also as Poongudiyal. The original temple was reduced to ruins in course of time and was built completely anew.  Lord and Mother were named Sundareswarar and Meenakshi respectively.
