Brahma's Temple

The only Brahma temple in the world is present at Pushkar. Though the Lord has a temple, he himself is not worshipped. The legend goes that Lord Brahma, desperate to perform a Holy Yajnya (Fire-Worship) at Pushkar decided to marry a local girl since wife Savitri was not ready to come to Mrutyulok (Earth). However, Savitri decided to check in on the erring husband and found him sitting alongside his new bride. Enraged Savitri cursed Brahma that he would loose the right to be worshipped anywhere else other than Pushkar and hence the only temple dedicated to this Lord of the Lords.

The temple is magnificently rebuilt in 1809. Make it a point to identify the four-faced icon of Brahma accompanied by his reticent bride, Gayatri. The turtle (pure silver) at the shrine's entrance also deserves a closer look. The entrance is marked by a maroon spire and atop the gateway a Hans (goose) is seen perched.
