About Brahma Temple, Pushkar

This is one of the few temples in India that is dedicated to Lord Brahma and perhaps the most prominent one. This temple is one of the pilgrimage sites for Hindus and every year innumerable devotees visit here during the Pushkar Mela. Although the present temple structure dates to the 14th century, it is believed to be 2000 years old. The temple is mainly built of marble and stone stabs. It has a distinct red pinnacle (shikhara) and a hamsa bird motif. The temple sanctorum holds the central images of Brahma and his second consort Gayatri.

Brahma Temple, Pushkar Reviews

  • 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.
