Brahma Temple, Pushkar

(1,100+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • This place is of historical fiction and values. Place only one in the world. Only Lord bharmaji temple on earth. People visiting here for offering prayers to creator of the world. To their own elders.
  • If you can avoid this place I recommend you to do it. It is a very important temple for local people, but it has nothing interesting to see for travellers.
  • The only temple of lord Brahma in entire world according to Hindu mythology. Nice place to visit. Beware of pandits asking you for pooja.
  • A must visit for every traveller Idol of lord brahma and other gods whithin temple premises is must to be see with detailed story from any of local pandit ji or guide. Though sometime crowded but you will feel miracle here with energy of spiritual power all around. Visit temple terrace facing holy lake too. Attractive place with lots of liveness.
  • More of religious importance of being one of the rare, if not sole, temple dedicated to Lord Brahma - the creator. Architecturally not very high by any standards, the heritage if any, needs to be brought out or displayed to be felt.
