History & Significance
Is it believed that Lord Brahma had killed a demon Vajranabha through his weapon- the Lotus.
The petals of the flower accidentally fell on the earth. Jayestha Lake, Madhya lake and Kanishtha lake are the three spots in Pushkar where the petals fell.
Lord Bhrahma had to perform a yagna with his wife Savitri after killing Vajranabha, but consort Savitri couldn’t arrive on time, hence he married Gayatri for the Yagna. Savitri then cursed lord Bhrahma with her powers and, as a result, the temple was dedicated to Brahma.. The temple still exists bespeaking the story of the incident.
