Brahma Temple, Pushkar

3.5
#1 of 9 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.

  • Nothing too special besides the fact that it's the only brahma temple, the architecture wasn't all that significant.  more »

  • Beuatiful Temple, I believe one of the few Brahma temple in India. Temple is closed from 2PM to 4 PM. There is a Bazaar adjoining the temple where you can find traditional things. Flight of steep stairs lead to the temple. Car parking is a little far away, so you will need to walk to the temple. Clicking pictures inside the temple premises is not allowed.
  • The only Brahma temple in India. Very positive and spiritual place. There is a whole lake present. Surrounding it is the market place with different ethics. Cotton candy people roaming all over. Rings, necklace and other artificial jewelry. Speaking weighting machines. It was fun watching different beautiful things. And one thing, pushkar do not accept ten rupee coins and I have myself experienced this.
  • One of the few temples of Lord Brahma in the world. The main temple is small and always overcrowded with large number of devotees. Also the temple closes in the afternoon for 2 hours from 2:00 to 4:00. There are marbles and tiles everywhere on the floors in the temple premises with name of the people who have contributed to the temple, on them. If you want peace of mind and solitude then do visit the Puskar Lake which is near to the temple. The water of the lake is considered to be holy and magical. By the way photography is not allowed in the temple and you will find cops scolding people for taking photographs.
  • It's a nice temple. It seems that the place really expects a donation though. There's some signs saying 500 rupees is a good amount. It looked the the locals were used to coming here and giving something at the desk. I didn't want to pray as I'm not exactly religious (and a bit out of my depth), but I had someone who said he was a brahmin act a little offended at this. He then taught me a little about the gods, and showed me how the pray. It was a little awkward as I hadn't requested it. It was cool to hear about it all, but I just knew he would want a donation even after I explicitly said I wasn't interested in paying or donating. In the end I said I wanted to go, and he waited awkwardly as I put on my shoes. Before I left I gave him 50 rupees, but I wanted much more for his family. He didn't seem gracious at all.
  • One of the two Brahma temple in the world. Small and beautiful. Should visit if you are around. Nothing special apart from religious importance.
