This temple is constructed on the banks of Pushkar Lake. This is one of the very few places which are devoted for worshipping Lord Brahma. This is so because of the curse given by Goddess Saraswati to Lord Brahma. It is considered that Lord Brahma performed a Yagya at this place. He was supposed to perform this Yagya with his wife Saraswati but she could not join him. Then Lord Brahma married some local girl and performed the Yagya. Then goddess Saraswati cursed him that he would be prayed nowhere but Pushkar.
During the month of full moon (Kartik Poornima), a great number of people come to visit this temple since this is the time when Lord Brahma performed his Yagya. Puskar fair is organized in the month of Kartik only. It is the largest cattle fair. Pushkar fair has also become a significant tourist attraction for domestic and international travelers, given the cooler season, the abundance of colorful cultural themes.Opening and Closing Timings:
