The warding off the evil eye symbols are quite different from what I am used to. And they make a cute picture too!

Thanks for the nice info. Appreciate it. We have been to Uthamar Koil. I think it is next to Sri Rangam. Right Chithra?

Beautiful temple and very interesting too especially since there are not many temples dedicated to Lord Brahma. Loved the pictures, the rudraksh covered canopy is so intricately done. Thanks for yet another fascinating post.

Fascinated by those masks designed to ward off the evil eye. Totally different from the Greek symbol that I am used to. Can these be found in houses as well and if so is their a particular place (IE a doorway/window) in which they are commonly found?

chitra said...

Ashok

chitra said...

liju philip said...

Is this the only temple they say has been created for Brahma? I remember having heard somewhere that there is only one temple created for the creator himself. Is it true?

sm said...

Very nice temple. Recently I worshipped Brahmapureeswarar Temple and had a nice darshan of the presiding deities. Lord Brahma's meditative posture is amazing. A must visit for everyone who goes to Trichy.
