Brahmadesam, a small beautiful village surrounded by kadana river and many canals, located near the Tirunelveli district of Tamilnadu, is one of many villages where we can see Mother Nature’s beauty. At the centre of this village is the ancient beautiful temple, Brihannayagi sametha Kailasanathar temple. Sage Romasa, grandson of Lord Brahma came to this temple to worship Kailasanathar in the form of swayambhu Linga — that’s how the name Brahmadesam is derived. Like many other temples in India, this temple too has a big pond, a beautiful tall Gopuram, and lots of elegantly carved statues. One such is the Nandhikeshwarar which is carved out of single stone and also a Natarajar statue named Punugu sabapathi with OM prabha around Him, also carved out of a single stone. An astonishing special Lion statue is found in the walls of the temple where there is a round stone inside the mouth of that Lion which can be freely rotated inside the mouth but can’t be taken out of it—what remarkable craftsmanship!
As part of the Balasthapana festival for the Rajagopuram and Vimanam in the temple, beginning 27th April 2023, Thursday, funds are required for a variety of activities, totalling over ₹4 lakhs. We are helping the temple Gurukkal Shri Kumar raise money for the sambhavanai to Shivacharyars during this festival.
Requesting all asthikas to donate generously to this noble cause and wonderful temple and obtain the blessings of Brihannayagi sametha Kailasanathar, and also participate in the Kumbhabhishekam festivities!
