Rajasthan Temples >> Brahma Temple

PUSHKAR- is a flourishing temple town full of religious myths and faiths, the biggest attraction being the temple of Lord Brahma-Lord of Creation; this is the only existing temple dedicated to Lord Brahma. It was constructed in 14th century, and stands on a high plinth with marble steps leading up to it.

A beautifully carved silver turtle sits on the floor facing the sanctum -sanctorum or garbha- griha. The marble floor around the silver turtle is embedded with hundreds of silver coins; silver coins with the donor's names engraved on them are also inset in the walls of temple.

Peacocks adorn the temple walls as they are believed to be the vehicle of Goddess Saraswati - the goddess of wisdom and consort of Lord Brahma. A small image of milkmaid Gayatri, flanks the four faced image of Lord Brahma and is known as Chaumurti. The sanctuary has silver doors inside a carved marble gateway. Steps in the corner lead to a small cave dedicated to Lord Shiva.

Mehandipur Bala Ji
Long ago the image of Lord Balaji and that of Pret Raja (the King of spirits) appeared from the Arawali hills. Now people suffering from malignant spirits and black magic or spell get their relief when they make an appeal for relief to Shri Bheruji Pret Raj Sankar who holds his court and awards punishment to the malignant spirits, ghosts, goblins, ghouls, evil eyed witches etc.

Shrine of Balaji, Court of Pret Raja, Pooja griha, Bheruji temple are sum of the spots worth seeing here.

Religious ritualistic performances, charity, feeding the poor, homeless and incapacitated people, water supply for all and fodder for cows and stray animals are the activities of this temple.
