Varah temple Pushkar Rajasthan
‘Varah’,which means boar and is known to be an avatar of Hindu lord Vishnu, remains in the form of a presiding deity in the Varah temple. This highly famous temple is considered to be the biggest and most ancient of the entire Pushkar.
The heavy devotion to Lord in Pushkar can be understood by Hindu mythology, which revolves around it. According to this, God had saved the earth from the monster Hiranyaksha in the form of Varah, who was trying to drown in the depth of water.
This temple was built in the 12th century, but with the combination of the body of a peacock and a person’s body, it was destroyed due to the cause of the troubled behavior of the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb.
Later, in the first part of the 18th century, King Sawai Jai Singh II of Jaipur decided to rebuild the temple in a splendid structure dedicated to the Lord. However, no one can still get pictures of damaged stone stones, carving, and architecture in the current structure of the temple.
