Pushkar is the epitome of pilgrim centers not only in the country but also in the world. It houses the world famous temple of Lord Brahma, along with another dozen temples of historical significance. People visit this oldest city from all over the world especially for Pushkar Fair and to cleanse all the sins of the past by immersing in the holy waters of this Buda Pushkar Sarovar. It acts like a magnet, as it attracts a number of tourists from around the world.

This holy town is now declared to be the developed as the temple city of Rajasthan due to its great religious significance, especially among the Hindus. The hustle-bustle of this town can only be seen in a single street where one can hear the enchanting of prayers, couplets and offering to the several deities.

As Pushkar is getting its makeover to become the new temple city so are the other temples of different other towns. Every town has a religious place which is close to the hearts of the inmates of that area and will be developed soon into a temple town. Some of those include the temple of Tejaji and Mirabai in Nagaur and in Hanumangarh – the Gogamedi temple.
