Apart from the Lord Brahma Temple, there are some other important temples in Pushkar. I could visit only the Rangji Temple, while the rest of them were given a miss due to lack of time. I am describing some of the important ones below.
Rangji/ Ramavaikunth Temple
Dedicated to Lord Vishnu and built in the 1920’s, it is one of the biggest temples in Pushkar and is situated very close to the main ghats of Pushkar Lake. The grand entrance gives you the glimpse of the splendor inside. Beautifully crafted and intricately sculpted in South Indian style, it is one of the main temples of Pushkar. It has a high rising Gopuram typical of southern India. It is said that special persons from southern India were summoned to build this temple.

Located on a hilltop, it is dedicated to the wife of Lord Brahma, Goddess Savitri. One has to climb a series of steps to reach there. It approximately takes an hour to get to the top and the views of Pushkar from there are said to be amazing.

The temple was originally built in the 12th century and houses a life size idol of Lord Varah, an incarnation of Lord Vishnu. The original temple was destroyed by Aurangzeb and rebuilt by Raja Sawai Jai Singh II of Jaipur in 1727.
Built in the 19th century, it is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is constructed in white marble. The idol is five faced and the temple is especially known for the ornaments with which the idol is decorated.
