Lord Brahmma had to lose his position as Creator as he was not able to explain the meaning of the Pranava Mantra. As advised by Mother Parvathi, He came to earth, installed a Sivalinga and worshipped to get back his position.
Brahmma also created a tank to draw water for the abishek of Lord Shiva. As the spring was created by him, it is called Brahmma Theertha.
Also, as Brahmma has four faces, He made four faces in the Linga too, hence the Linga came to be known as Chaturmuka Linga – Chaturmukha – four faces. This was the Linga worshipped by devotees in the early days.
In the years that followed, King Sundara Pandian built a temple combining the tradition of both Pandyas and the Cholas.
In the Chola temple, the main tower (Rajagopuram) would be small and Vimanam taller and in the Pandya temples it would be other way round. As the temple combines both traditions both are taller.
The Shivalinga was installed on a big Avudayar (the seat for placing the deity) in the sanctum sanctorum. The Lord was named Vruddhapureeswarar indicating the age. Vruddha means old.
In Tamil, He is called Pazhampathinathar. As the place is ancient as Lord Brahmma the Creator, the place is considered to be very old.
