Varaha (Boar) is one of the incarnations of Lord Vishnu, who is believed to have taken 9 incarnations till now in order to eradicate evil form earth. This temple was built in the 12th century and destroyed by the fanatic Muslim Emperor Aurangzeb (who was extremely offended by the titanic statue of Vera, man’s body and a boar’s head) among various other temples in Pushkar. The temples were renovated at a later date by Raja Sawai Jai Singh II of Jaipur (1727).

The temple hosts a remarkable opulently bejeweled image house. The sight of the temple and the idol are imposing and its only upon a visit that one comes to know as to why the temple is considered amongst the three best temples in Pushkar alongside the Brahms and Rangji temples.
