Brahma Temple, Pushkar, Rajasthan



Although the city of Pushkar has 400 odd temples, the Brahma Temple is the most famous of them. Brahma is one of the Hindu trinity Brahma, Vishnu and Maheswar - the three gods representing creation, sustenance and destruction. According to the myths, Brahma is the god of creation of this earth. The four heads symbolizes His presence everywhere.

The most remarkable thing about the Brahma temple is that it is the only one temple on earth dedicated to Lord Brahma. Pushkar literally means a pond created by flowers. Legends have it that Lord Brahma, when wanted to perform a yagna, dropped a lotus to determine the place on earth. That is how Pushkar was created. There is more to this story.

Lord Brahma wanted to perform the ritual at the most auspicious time but it required the presence of His consort Savitri. Irritated by her delay, He married Gayatri the milkmaid and installed her instead of Savitri. Savitri got infuriated by this and cursed that no one on earth would worship Him. Later relented on pleas from other deities, she agreed that Lord Brahma would only be worshipped in Pushkar.

According to the ancient scriptures, this is one of the most sacred pilgrimage sites for the Hindus. The temple stands on a high pedestal with marble stairs leading up to this. The temple houses a life-sized idol of the 4-headed God. Silver coins ate embedded on the black and white chequered marble flooring. A beautifully carved silver turtle is placed on the floor facing the sanctorum.
