According to mythical legend, Lord Brahma's fist consort was Lady Savitri. It is said that during an important yagna, for some unforeseen circumstances, Lady Savitri was unable to reach the citadel in time. To complete the yagna, Lord Brahma was compelled to marry another woman, Lady Gayatri. Angered by this happening, Lady Savirti cursed Lord Brahma that he will have only one temple for his worship in the whole world. So that is the importance of Pushkra.
Legends aside, it is believed that the Brahma temple was set up as early as 718 CE by Adi Shankara. After the devastation of the Aurangzeb rule, only the Brahma temple was retained in rubble. Jawat Raj was the one to restore the Brahma temple to its modern form. The inners sanctum houses the divine statue of Lord Brahma and the whole of the inner decorations are done with marbles. The towering temple spire and great architecture is a visual treat for the visitors apart from the serene Pushkar Lake by its side. The Brahma temple is the main tourist attraction of these parts of Rajasthan and the place is well connected too.
