Bramha temple Pushkar timings and religious significance
Religious significance of Brahma Temple in Puhskar
The Brahma temple in Pushkar is one of the few temples dedicated to Lord Brahma in the world. The brahma temple is located on the banks of the Pushkar Sarovar in Ajmer, Rajasthan and is considered the most prominent temple to worship the creator of the universe. Pushkar has more than 500 temples but the most significant temple both from ‘religious history’ and ‘number of visitors per year’ perspective is the Jagatpita Brahma Mandir. While there are a few other Brahma temples around the world, the Brahma Mandir at Pushkar is considered the foremost temple for worshipping Lord Brahma.
Pushkar means “born of a flower”. As per ancient scriptures, Lord Brahma was in search of a suitable location for performing a Yagna. A lotus flower (pushpa) fell from Lord Brahma’s hand (kar) at this spot and hence it is was called Pushkar. Lord Brahma conducted his yagna at Pushkar. This temple was built by Vishwakarma after Brahma’s yagna at Pushkar.
On Karthik Purnima (full moon night of the Hindu Lunar month of Kartik – October/November) a grand festival is held in honor of Lord Brahhma at Pushkar. Lakhs of pilgirms visit to take a bath in the Pushkar Lake on Karthik Purnima.
It is believed that Adi Sankara, the Advaita philospher, renovated this temple in the eight century. A popular ritual for pilgrims is to take a ceremonial bath in the Puskar lake before visting the temple.
