Brahma Temple, Pushkar

3.5
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Pushkar
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 temple is very busy and at the heart of the Bazaar. The day of the independence day, the visit was complicated, and then-"single" file in this temple without having time to observe and not allowed to take pictures!

    Nice temple. A piece of advice, do not buy Gulkand sold outside as it is overpriced. Avoid services from Pundits who will contact you during your whole stay. You can visit all the places without much ...  more »

    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.
