Brahma Temple, Pushkar

(3.5/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Worshippers come to Brahma Temple to revere Hinduism's four-faced god of creation. Although believed to be over 2000 years old, the current marble version of the temple dates to the 14th century. As you approach by stairs, notice the distinct red pinnacle with a hamsa bird motif--its most recognizable feature. Find the Brahma's central life-size icon made of marble, which sits cross-legged in the Vishvakama form (creation of the universe aspect). See how he stares everywhere across the room with its four faces, as the goddess and consort Gayatiri sits closely to his left. Despite the fact that the nearby lake has ceremonial purposes, tourism and deforestation in the surroundings have taken a heavy toll on water quality. Brahma Temple is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Pushkar Edition.

  • Incredible to see how devout hindi people are. You have to take out your shoes before getting in, and you're not able to have any kind of bag or backpack on you. There's touts that try to convince you to leave your stuff with them - don't do it. Go there with just a few rupees in your pocket and your phone in case you want to take some sneaky pictures inside (it's not allowed to bring cameras in, nor to take pictures I believe). Be ready to walk barefooted and don't be afraid to come out with sticky and dirty feet!
  • Temple dedicated to brahma ji ,the creator as per hindu mythology...but was little disappointed on visiting the temple as it had lot of hype around.The silver lining on the cloud is the local market which has something for everyone..
  • This is supposedly THE ONLY BRAHMA temple in the world. A nice temple nevertheless. Beware of people trying to rip you off money claiming they'll help you get rid of all your woes by performing a special pooja on the river banks. Not to forget, do check out the variety of stuff you could pick on your way back across the street and treat yourself with yummy food!
  • hare a now Jagatpita Brahma Mandir is a Hindu temple situated at Pushkar in the Indian state of Rajasthan, close to the sacred Pushkar Lake to which its legend has an india
  • Nice place. We had been here on the day of Guru Pournima. And the temple was nicely decorated. Its in a market/crowded area. There are many shops Ave few good hotels in surrounding area.
