Of all the 400+ temples in Pushkar, none is more important than the Jagatpipa Brahma Mandir. Dedicated to the Hindu God of Creation, the ancient structure of this temple dates back two millennia. The present structure was set up in the 14th century. The inner hall of the temple is dedicated to Brahma and his second wife, Gayatri.
The imposing marble and stone slabs used in its construction, coupled with the red shikhara (spire) and the goose symbol above the entrance gate, make this a must-visit temples for all travellers, irrespective of religion. The inner walls and floor of the temple are inscribed with holy writings to the dead.
Just behind the Brahma Temple, on Ratnagiri Hill, sits the exquisite Savitri Temple. Constructed in 1687, this temple is dedicated to Brahma’s first wife and requires devotees to make a steep climb to the peak of the hill. However, the surrounding view of Pushkar’s lakes, temples and sand dunes make it worth the ascent.
