PUSHKAR - RAJ
The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma

As most of his sports are revealed on this sacred soil, it is given the highest honour, and being the only Brahma Kshetra, unprecedented glory attends to it. Hence the emphasis by the sage Pulastya that Pushkar is the first and foremost among the thirthas, and he ends his, long narration to Pitamaha Bhishma that thirthas begin with Pushkar. A dip is indispensable, and only the fortunate avail this rare opportunity. Above all, it is said by eminent authorities on numerous occasions that bathing in other thirthas like Ganges, Prayaga etc., or pilgrimage to four Dhamas-Badari, Puri, Dwaraka and Rameswar does not confer merit, or expiate sins, unless Pushkar is visited for sacred bath. After a visit and dip in Pushkar alone one is found awakened by welcome speeches of heavenly damsels in the vimana, carrying him to heaven. Hence the fittest appellation Pushkar Raj i.e., the king of Thirthas, which it acquired by the presence of Brahma there eternally as promised to the Vanadevatha on his first visit, and is honourably kept up by him.
