Jagatpita Brahma Mandir or the Brahma Temple located in Pushkar, Rajasthan is the most famous Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Brahma who is considered the creator of the universe. Being the only temple dedicated to Brahma in India, it attracts lakhs of pilgrims every year. The small town of Pushkar seems holy because of the presence of Brahma Temple. It also finds its mention in the prominent ten religious places of the world and the five sacred pilgrimages for Hindus in India.
Originally built in the 14th century, the Brahma Temple is believed to be 2000 years old. Initially constructed by the sage Vishwamitra, it went through renovation several times under Adi Shankara. Built from marble and enormous stone slabs, it houses the images of Lord Brahma along with his two wives, Gayatri and Savitri. The shrine is governed by Sanyasi (ascetic) sect priesthood. The fact that Lord Brahma chose Pushkar to perform Yagya makes this town sanctified.
The holy Pushkar Lake flowing right in front of the temple adds to its purity. The place has a different aura that soaks you in its holiness. The auspicious day of Kartik Poornima takes the spirituality to a next level. A visit to Brahma Temple and a dip in the sacred Pushkar Lake will surely absolve all your sins. To worship Lord Brahma, who is rarely found, is equivalent to attaining liberation and hence, should be on your bucket list.
