PUSHKAR - RAJ
The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma

THE TEMPLE

The ancient shrines of unparalleled spiritual opulence were destroyed by Moghul Emperors, particularly Aurangazeb, the religious zealot of low breed, but were renovated and
rebuilt by Rajput princes, whose magnanimous patronage of art and architecture is now beckoning the attention of the visitors through sculptural marvels in every temple worthy to be visited. Amongst the existing many, the temples of Badrinarayana, Varahaji, Atmeswar Mahadeo and Savitri, besides Brahma shrine are of great importance. The present temple of Brahma was built by one great philanthropist and thiest called Gokul Chand Parekh who served as Minister under Scindhia in 1809. The Varahaji temple was rebuilt by Arnoja in 1120-50, but repaired by Sagar, the brother of Rana Pratap of Chittoor. And when it tasted the wrath of Jahangir and Aurangzeb, Maharaja Jaising II of Jaipur renovated and made many additions. Badrinath temple likewise, was rebuilt by the Thakur, of Kharva of Ajmir in 1800. The Atmeswar Mahadeo shrine was renovated by Gomanti Rao in 1809. A purohit of great name, who worked under Ajit Singh of Marwar rebuilt Savitri temple in 1687. In addition to these ancient ones renovated, there is one modern temple called Rangaji temple built by Ramanuja, and it attracts all types of visitors.
