Pushkar is believed to be the only place in this world where one can find the Brahma Temple.

But besides the one in Pushkar, there are also few Brahma Temples in India which are though less known but are as amazing as the one that falls under your Rajasthan Tour Package in the city of Pushkar.
Why Brahma Worshipped Less
There are many legends associated with the less worship of Brahma, one legend goes like, that Brahma the creator of the world when compared to other Gods being lenient in giving the boons and blesses his devotees wholeheartedly without thinking of the consequences. He has given boons to demons such as Hiranyakashipu, Mahishasur and even to Ravana which encourages them to torture humankind as well as Gods. For this Lord Vishnu and Lord Shiva have incarnate in different avatars to overcome this situation. Thus seeing Brahma’s leniency people stopped worshiping him and start offering prayers to Vishnu and Brahma.
There is one more legend that will surely excite your Rajasthan tourism and the legend is associated with lady deity Shatrupa. She was created by Lord Brahma and getting infatuated by her beauty; Brahma started following her everywhere and gives himself five heads. When Shiva came to know this she cut off Brahma’s fifth head as Shatrupa was Brahma’s daughter and this relation would not consider appropriate. Ever since Brahma has been considered as the ignored one among the Trinity.
