Jagat Shri Brahma Temple Pushkar:

Jagat Shri Brahma Temple Pushkar

The simply standing Hindu temple in India devoted to Lord Brahma, the maker of the universe, the structure around the temple was built in the 14th century and stands on a high stage near Pushkar lake. Brahma is one of the Holy Trinity in Hinduism, sharing the honour with Vishnu the Preserver and Shiva the Destroyer. Though a especially huge number of temples can be establish all over India devoted to Shiva and Vishnu, there are very few temples for Brahma, this being one of the holiest one.

Marble steps guide up to the temple wherever a silver turtle lies printed in the floor facing the sanctorum. The marble floor around the turtle is littered with hundreds of silver coins embedded in the floor, and so are the walls of the temple. Images of the peacock, the vehicle of Brahma’s consort Saraswati, adorn the temple walls. Brahma here is shown in a life-size form with four hands and four faces, facing four special directons. A hans (goose, the official carrier of Brahma) spans the gateway to the temple which is crowned through a red spire. A small statue of the milk goddess Gayatri (whom Brahma married) near Brahma’s idol is called Chaumurti. Steps inside the silver-doored sanctuary lead down into a little cave which is a Hindu temple of Lord Shiva.
