According to the Hindu folklore, Lord Brahma was determined to perform a yajnya (fire-worship) at Pushkar. However, his wife, Savitri was not present to perform the yajnya with him at the designated time. This compelled Lord Brahma to marry a local milkmaid, Gayatri, to perform the yajnya with her. This act of Lord Bramha irked his wife, Savitri. She cursed Lord Bramha that he would not be worshipped anywhere else, except Pushkar.

This temple was originally built in the 14th century. The temple has a majestic four-headed image of Lord Brahma sitting in a lotus position with his young consort, Gayatri on the left, and Savitri on the right.
