Uttamar Kovil

Uttamar Kovil (also known as Thirukkarambanoor) is a temple in Tiruchirapalli city in Tamil Nadu, India. It is known for the Sri Purushothaman Perumal Temple or otherwise known as Uttamar Kovil (Uttamar means The good one and Kovil means Temple). It has the shrines of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva in the same complex, making this a unique temple with shrines for all three gods and their consorts in the same place. There are very few temples where Brahma, the first of the trinity, is worshipped in statue form, which makes this temple an important place of worship.
