Famous for its temple dedicated to Brahma the god of creation, Pushkar is a very important pilgrimage place for the Hindus. Pushkar also has other sacred links to divinity. It is the place where the Sage Vishvamitra meditated for thousands of years,  Sage Agastya’s hermitage is said to be situated at this place and even the Saptarishis or the seven rishis namely Atri, Bharadwaja, Gautama, Jamadagni, Kashyapa, Vashista and Vishvamitra are said to have their hermitages at this particular holy place.


The legend behind the creation of Pushkar Lake was that the lake was created when Brahma accidentally dropped a lotus from his hand and the same fell into the Pushkar valley where it formed a lake due to the impact. There are very few temples which are dedicated to God Brahma the creator. So if one happens to visit this temple he is visiting a very unique temple and a very holy place. He will be able to get the darshan or blessings of God Brahma the repository of the Vedas.  It is a must visit place for any tourist especially a Hindu visiting wanting to take the blessings of God Brahma.
