    Three different forms of Shiva

    On 3rd day of our twelve days religious personal tour in pious Shravan month from Chennai to Trivandrum by taxi, we visited this holy temple at beginning of journey. It is just at a 20 km from Chidambaram. Sirkazi Bhramapureeswarar is an ancient temple complex with three different Shiva Shrines. The Bhramapureeswarar shrine is housed in the lower level. The second level houses Periyanakar with Periyanayaki on a Thoni, hence the name Thoniappar. Is also housed here. Three different forms of Shiva are worshipped here, the Shivalingam, a colossal image of Uma Maheswarar (Toniappar) at the medium level, and Bhairavar (Sattanathar) at the upper level. The temple is known by the legend of child Sambandar who is believed to have been fed by Parvathi on the banks of the temple tank. The child later went on to composeTevaram, a Saiva canonic literature on Shiva and became one of the most revered Saiva poets in South India. A nice visit. Must visit place for devotee of Lord Shiva.
