Brahmapureeswarar Tirupattur is an ancient temple. Stone inscriptions found and studied by Archaeological Survey of India in Tirupattur indicate the presence of this town from more than 1600 years. The town has been referred to as Sri Madhava Chaturvedi Mangalam, Veera Narayana Chaturvedi Mangalam, Tiruperur and Brahmapuram (Brahmeeswaram) clearly establishing the presence of the temple at that time itself and during the rule of the Cholas, Vijayanagar and Hoysala Kingdoms. A fort existed in this town about 800 years ago and this got attached to the names of both Brahmapureeswarar Tirupattur and the Perumal temple here.


Brahma is believed to have installed and worshiped the lord here at Brahmapureeswarar Thirupattur.


Brahmapureeswarar Tirupattur is near the lake shore road. We advise you to park your vehicle wherever convenient and either walk or take an autorickshaw to visit this temple, the nearby Perumal and Anjaneya Temples. The road are narrow, crowded and difficult to navigate.
