DHARMAPURI

This Kshetra since that time is called Dharmapuri after the name of Dharma Varma who actually strove for the vision of the Lord. Brahma also came to be worshipped in this temple, since Dharma Varma first did penance to Brahma, and hence in the temple of Dharmapuri there is the image of Lord Brahma, which is very rare in temples.

The other important deities of this temple are a big idol of Yama at the gate and an idol of Murali Krishna, and another of Balarama, the two latter being kept at the inner gate. There are also eight idols of Lord Hanuman around the temple. The Brahma idol is a big one about 6 feet high with four faces.
