History Of Pushkar

In this Paragraph I will tell you about the Histroy of Pushkar . One of the Priest near the lake told me regarding the history of the city which I want to share with all of you.

Bhrama Ji had a desire while giving shape to the Earth. He wanted to have a place which can be devoted to him, people can come there to worship and pray to him. He went to Shiv ji and Vishnu ji to discuss. Both the Lords advised him to go to heaven and drop flower from there, where ever the flower drops that place can be dedicated to Bhrama ji.

Bhrama ji dropped three lotus flowers from heaven. The place where they landed were named after bhrama ji. Pushp in Hindi means Flower and hence the name

The three places were

  • Bhrama Pushkar { The main city }
  • Vishnu Pushkar
  • Buda Pushkar

Bhrama Sarovar ! The Pushkar Lake

In this Paragraph i will tell you regarding the Bhrama Sarovar. The lake is located in the City Centre and forms the major attraction of the town. Sarovar in hindi means lake. This place is devoted to Bhrama Ji so it gets it’s name Bhrama Sarovar.

The main ghat of the Bhrama Sarovar is the Bharama Saviti Ghat. This Ghat is the right place for performing prayers and giving respect to elders of the family who are no more. This ghat is located at the same place where Bhrama ji got married to Gayatri mata. The story is present in my VLOG please watch to have a look.

BEWARE WE GOT CONNED !

In this paragraph I will tell you how we got conned. This is an Interesting story. Firstly on our arrival in pushkar we went to the sarovar. (This is a tradition that before visiting the temple you must visit the lake). There we met a man who told us that he is from the local welfare society and will tell us all about the place. Initially he gave a very good introduction and we got interested.

After giving the introduction he told us to buy a plate of prashad.(Prashad is offering that we make to God in hindu relegion) . The plate costed us Rs 10. There comes the main part. We were 5 members from the same family and even after telling them the same thing they divided us in a three groups. The priest performed a very normal pooja and the end of all this tried emotionally blackmailed us to give dan (money in offering) which they will use to buy food for the spirits of our family elders who are in heaven.

The price rage was really high . I personally didn’t like this. My belief is that you should give according to your pocket and not according to a fixed price tag. Sadly Well this is the major concern in almost all major temples in India. Different Price list for Different kind of belief. Well now it was time to move towards the temple.
