Brahma Temple, Pushkar
The Brahma temple is an important pilgrim centre for the Hindus. It is nestled in the Pushkar valley which lies beyond Nagaparvat and the Anasagar lake. This place, full of natural beauty, holds a special place in the hearts of Indians for it is believed that Lord Brahma, together with all the gods and goddesses, performed a Yagya here.
Legend also has it that the ancient lake Sarovar had appeared miraculously, when a lotus fell from the hands of Lord Brahma and dropped into the this valley. The image of Brahmaji in Pushkar is in a seated Palthi position.
This temple built with marble is decorated with silver turtle on the floor of the temple. The Rangnath temple has been built in southern style and is simply magnificent. Its images are almost true of life.
This temple has an image of Lord Vishnu, life-size dwarpals (door men) and Garuda pillars showing the mythical bird styled in gold. Pushkar has around four hundred temples. There is a temple dedicated to Mahalaskmi, who is the goddess of wealth and the Godamba Temple.
Worth special mention are the temples of Vishnu. Atmeshvara, Gayatri, Savitri and the old Ranagnath Tourism Development Corporation also provides facilities to the tourists, specially during the Pushkar fair, when a tented village is put up.
