Pushkar, located in the heart of Rajasthan, India, holds significant significance in Hinduism as a city rich in spirituality and sacred traditions. Iconic for the Pushkar Lake, believed to be formed from a lotus that fell from the hands of Lord Brahma, it is one of the few places in the world dedicated to Lord Brahma in Hinduism. The Brahma Temple in Pushkar is a major Tirth Kshetra, dedicated to Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe, and is considered to be one of the rare temples dedicated to him. During Kartik Purnima, an important Hindu festival, devotees come to Pushkar to take a dip in the sacred Pushkar Lake and with its blessings, get relief from all the diseases of life and make life happy. Pushkar Camel Fair, a prestigious annual event, further adds to the cultural and spiritual vibrancy of Pushkar. Tirthyatri and devotees alike are often drawn to the ghats, temples, and mystique of the desert landscape surrounding Pushkar. And they yearn for the blessings of Lord Brahma. Pushkar serves as a blend of spirituality, cultural exchange and religious fervor, making it a unique and cherished destination in the list of Hindu pilgrimage sites.

Mythological History:

Pushkar Lake or Pushkar Sarovar, which is a sacred Hindu lake located in Pushkar town of Ajmer district of Rajasthan state, is a pilgrimage site according to Hindus. From the mythological point of view, this lake was built by Lord Brahma, hence a temple of Lord Brahma has also been built near the lake.

Pushkar is one of the important pilgrimage places. It has the same importance as Banaras or Prayag. The journey of a pilgrim visiting the four Dhams of Jagannath, Badrinarayan, Rameshwaram, and Dwarka is not complete until he takes a bath in the holy waters of Pushkar. It is written about Pushkarraj in the Mahabharata that among the three worlds, the world of death is It is great and the most favorite place of the gods in the world of death is Pushkar. Pushkar is also considered the third eye of the earth.

Tirtharaj Pushkar is called the Guru of all pilgrimages. It is considered the most sacred of the five pilgrimage sites in the religious scriptures. Pushkar, Kurukshetra, Gaya, Haridwar, and Prayag have been called Panchtirtha. The sacred and mythological Pushkar Lake, built in the shape of a crescent moon, has been a center of religious and spiritual attraction.

It is believed that Pushkar is a centuries-old religious place. According to Van Parva of Mahabharata, Shri Krishna had performed penance for a long time in Pushkar. After kidnapping Subhadra, Arjun took a rest in Pushkar. Maryada Purushottam Shri Ram also performed the Shraddha of his father Dasharatha in Pushkar. In Valmiki Ramayana, Vishwamitra did penance here.

The creator of the universe, Brahmaji, had performed a great yagya in Pushkar from Kartik Shukla Ekadashi to Purnima in the presence of gods and sages. The water of Pushkar Lake blossomed from the lotus flower thrown by Lord Brahma to select the appropriate place. The three places from where the flower hit were called (Brahma) Jyeshtha Pushkar, (Vishnu) Middle Pushkar, (Shiva) Junior or Old Pushkar. There was a lot of chaos in this Yagya of Brahmaji. Brahmaji's wife Savitri could not reach the Yagya on time due to misinterpretation of Naradji's statement. Then, seeing the time running out, on the orders of Brahmaji, Devraj Indra got a local cowherd girl purified from the mouth of a cow and named her Gayatri and got Brahmaji married to her and made Gayatri sit in the yagya as Brahmaji's wife. When Mother Savitri reached the Yagya place and saw Gayatri sitting at her place, she got angry and cursed Lord Brahma and herself went to the nearby hill. According to the curse of Savitri, whoever builds a temple of Lord Brahma and consecrates his idol in the future will die. This is the reason why the only temple of Brahmaji in the whole world is located in Pushkar.

After her anger subsided, Mother Savitri went to the hills near Pushkar indulged in penance, and then remained there. It is said that by staying here, Savitri brings welfare to the devotees. In Pushkar, Savitri is as important as Lord Brahma. Savitri is considered the goddess of good fortune. It is believed that worshiping here leads to a long life for the married couple. This is the reason why women come here and offer mehendi, bindi, and bangles as Prasad and ask Savitri for the long life of their husbands.

India's largest camel fair: The Pushkar fair is held from Kartik Shukla Ekadashi to Purnima, in which a large number of domestic and foreign tourists come. People consider this fair as a symbol of reverence, faith, and belief. Pushkar Fair is a popular and colorful fair of Marudhara. An interesting part of the fair is the buying and selling of camels. More than 25,000 camels are traded here every year. During the fair, a meeting of many cultures is seen in Pushkar. On one hand, foreign tourists arrive in large numbers, while on the other hand, tribals and villagers from Rajasthan and surrounding areas participate with their animals.
