Brahma Temple (Pushkar)

The abode of Lord Brahma and the only temple in the world dedicated to the creator is located in Pushkar. The temple is believed to be dating back to the 14th century and stands on a high plinth with marble steps leading to the inner sanctum. The silver inlaid marble archways and the elaborately carved swans are all a delight to watch. The temple is beautifully adorned with an alluringly carved silver turtle which sits on the floor facing the inner sanctum or the garbhagriha. The turtle is surrounded by hundreds of silver coins with the names of donors engraved on them.
