KRISHNAVTAR  KSHETRAS IN RAJASTHAN

Pushkar - Sri Venugopala Mandir

Pushkar, the world-renowned Brahma kshetra houses many ancient temples, among which Venugopalaswamy temple comes first for indispensable visitation. The temple built in the Dravidian style of architecture possesses several deities popularly adored by South Indians most. It emanates typical Tamil culture as evidenced by the installation of archamurtis in Dravidian style and having the names of deities and mode of worship as practised in Tamilnadu such as Pundarikavalli Tayar, Udaiyavar, Manavala Mahamuni, to speak only a few. The archamurti-Venugopalaswamy graced his presence to Brahma and conferred boons. The garbha griha is adorned with Mangala Vimana and the temple tank is popular as Pushkara thirtha. This is counted as one of the Swayamvyakta sthalas and is visited by a steady stream of visitors throughout the year. Nithyanaimithika worship is offered only in the South Indian style, though the temple is lying in the north.

There is another Vaishnavate temple here dedicated to Sri Rama. It is also visited both by northerners and southerners. It also contains many adorable parivaradevatas installed in befitting niches and pavilions. The archamurtis image is exceedingly enchanting and ignites devotional instincts at the first sight itself.

It is 12 km off Ajmer, the erst-while princely capital of Rajputs connected by rail, road, and airways upto Ajmer and from there four wheelers.
