PUSHKAR - RAJ
The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma

It witnessed the wedding of Brahma with Gayatri, while the first wife Savitri was still alive; it is here Viswamitra sacrificed his tapasakti to creating  Swarga for Trisanku; it is the self same spot that bears witness to his amorous life with the heavenly damsel Menaka; it is here Brahma killed Vajranabha, the formidable Yama to children with mere dropping of lotus; it is here the first Vanamahostav was held in honour of Brahma by Vanadevata for accepting permanent settlement here; it is in this Punya thirtha, Rama, lakshmana and Sita had their ceremonial bath; it is here King Parikshit performed Sarpayag; it is from here the sacred Gayatri mahamantra came from Viswamitra, it is this place that changed Rajarshi into Brahmarshi; it is this place that saw the misfortune of Brahma's losing his fifth head at the hands of Maheswar and also his legitimate high place among the Trinity; and his worship forbidden too. By and large, it is this sacred spot that witnessed the glorious rise and nefarious fall of Brahma, the first among the Trio, together, with Viswamitra's fluctuating fortunes.
