Brahma Temple, Pushkar

3.4
#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.

  • The Brahma Temple is the only one in the whole of India and well worth a visit but very busy The lake is accessible by various ghats just be careful the views are spectacular but walk around the lake ...  more »

  • Nice but not what rave merchants Street leading to it and the parking lot with the camels are more attractive than the temple unless you're a keen on religion

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Spiritual place. Situated near the puskar lake. The temple is one of very few existing temples dedicated to the Hindu creator-god Brahma in India and remains the most prominent among them. Photography is not allowed inside the temple
  • A very holy temple of Lord Brahma , the creator of this whole universe. Nice and holy place where peace and sanctity lies. People came here from all over the India and wish for happiness and prosperity. The temple is beautiful but photography is not allowed inside it.The staff management is good but there is no cleaniness and hygienic conditions outside the temple. So Govt and the temple authorities should take care over this issue.
  • Only temple of Lord Brahma ji in India, as claimed. Worth visiting. Please take care of senior members of the family, if they have issue with climbing stairs coz 1 have to climb few dozens. Market in the surrounding is wort visiting, but ready to bargain little. Even if you don't bargain much then also it will not matter much on pocket.
