SIRKALI

FESTIVALS 

Of the important festivals celebrated here, Tirumalaippal is given the highest importance. It falls on the 2nd of Chitra. And it is on that auspicious day, Mother Uma fed Sambandar and made him the much renowned Tirugnana Sambandar.  Hence the attraction. Festivals during Adi and Navaratri have a great attraction. This Lord was worshipped by gods, sages, singers, saints and emperors of great eminence.  Brahma appeared to have descended several times to offer prayers to the Lord, so the holy place was called Brahmapuram for long. Siva is worshipped here in his three forms Guru, Linga and Sangama.  Uma Maheswar worship represents Guru Moorthi, Sri Brahmapureeswara stands for Linga Moorthi and Sattainathaswamy symbolises the Sangana Moorthi.  The goddess is popularly known as Sthira Sundari.

There are twenty two tirthas in the town and two in the temple itself - Brahma Thirtha and Parachara Thirtha. Bathing in them is efficacious and liberates the sinners. Eminent Nayanamars like Tirunaukkarasu, Sundarar and Manickavachakar sang in praise of this Lord.  And the songs are preserved with honour due.  It is a place of emancipation and exemplifies the glories of Lord Maheswar and Mother Uma to a degree of utmost significance, and the spiritual solace it confers is indeed equal to none but to itself. Visit it for emancipation Adore now for instant solace!!
