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.

  • Unique tempo of Brahma in India, so the importance. Center little. It can not be entered with bags or cameras. Free!

  • Such a pretty place. So much to see and absorb. The space is circular, so you can just carry your shoes and walk around. The temple is magnificent and so is the nearby Durga mandir. Truly magical.  more »
  • The Brahma temple, supposed to be the only temple in the world, disappoints you when you reach there. The temple is dirty coupled with disinterested priests sitting there. Of course if you offer "Daks...  more »

  • 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.
  • Difficult to write a review about a place of worship. One mans heaven could be another’s hell, so I’d steer clear about commenting about the actual temple. What is unfortunately true about this temple and I guess most temples in the world that unsavoury characters throng such places hoping for easy pickings or people to swindle. Such experiences leave a bad taste in the mouth and one feels disgusted. As far as the temple is concerned, it’s a place of worship so there is as much peace as is in your heart.

  • Awesome temple one of its kind in entire India as there are no temple for Brahma anywhere else. The entry has a fleet of steps and was a bit crowded when we visited. The security arrangements are good with frequent announcements. The only issue is even before you reach the taxi stand the local boys literally kind of attack you saying they are local guides and coerce you to engage their services. Actually you don't need any such services. Lots of shops that sell Pooja items have provisions to safe keep the footwear. There is a nice Kali diety too besides main deity. Wonderful experience.
  • The only place of worship of Lord Brahma in the whole world. Adorns a beautiful 3 faced statue of Brahma Ji along with shrines of all other Hindu Gods.
