Every year between October and November, Pushkar is flocked by thousands of devotees who seek blessings at the Jagat Pita Brahma Mandir. There are numerous legends that describe the origins of this significant temple and the city of Pushkar itself, the most famous being that once Pushkar was founded, Lord Brahma got a second wife to perform a Temple yagna: holy ritual performed to please the Gods; only to anger his first wife Savitri. As a result, Savitri cursed Lord Brahma, saying that Pushkar would be the only place in the world where He would be worshiped. Thus it is believed that Shri Jagat Pita Brahma Temple in Pushkar is the sole temple dedicated to Lord Brahma. The temple is completely crafted from pure marble and overlooks the Pushkar Lake, again deemed very sacred to Hindus. Within the premises, also lies a Shiva Temple, located in the basement. One of the most celebrated festivals here, Kartik Poornima also coincides with the much glamorized Pushkar Fair, that draws curious international tourists in hordes. Not surprisingly, this is also the time of the year when the Pushkar Bazaar, right outside the temple does roaring business.
