Located in the Thanjavur district of Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu, Brahma Temple is a Hindu Temple mainly dedicated to Lord Vishnu colloquially known as Vedanarayanaperumal. His consort- Goddess Lakshmi enshrines the chamber next to the presiding deity, and she is known as Vedavalli. Lord Brahma occupies the shrine adjacent to the sanctum sanctorum on the right. The temple is popularly known as Brahma Temple as this is one of the only two temples dedicated to Brahma in the world. The temple presents Lord Brahma in a four face figure- the front face and the adjoining two faces are open to display; however, the back face is of a female, that can only be seen in the mirror which is veiled and can be viewed only after requesting the priest to uncover the mirror.
