Brahma Temple Overview

Ranked 3 of 53 sightseeing in Ajmer

Brahma Temple lies nestled in the Pushkar valley. Situated beyond Naga Parbat and the Ana Sagar Lake, the site is considered extremely sacrosanct. It’s stature stems from the belief that Lord Brahma, together with all the gods and goddesses performed a Yagna at this site. Folklore legends also point to the belief that the ancient lake had appeared miraculously when a lotus fell from the hands of Lord Brahma and dropped into the valley.

Built with marble, the temple has been embellished with silver coins. The temple also contains a silver turtle on it’s floor. Located close to the sacred Pushkar Lake, the temple is dedicated to the Hindu creator-god Lord Brahma. Dating back to the 14th century, the temple has a red pinnacle (shikhara) and a hamsa bird motif. Built of marble and stone stabs, the temple sanctum sanctorum holds the central images of Brahma and his second consort, Gayatri.

Set on high plinth, the temple also has a Garbhagriha, which is built in marble. There are a number of marble steps leading to an entrance gate archway that has been decorated with pillared canopies. Deified in the Garbhagriha in 718 AD by Adi Shankara, the central image of the temple is called the chaumurti.

One and only Lord Brahma Temple on Earth

If you are in Pushkar and haven't visited Lord Brahma Temple then your Journey is incomplete. The one and only temple of Lord Brahma located in Pushkar, Ajmer. Really good place, nice and calm. Security is there, Mobile and Cameras inside temple premises are not allowed. You can keep your shoes outside temple at the flower shops for free.Temple closes at 12 Pm and opens in the evening at 4 PM.

Worth visiting

The only temple where the temple is meant for Lord Brahma. Idols and Sculptures in the temple premises are very different when compared to other temples. Sculptures related to Brahma are available like Airavat, Indra, Kuber etc.
