According to the Padma Purana, the story behind Pushkar temple is that Lord Brahma was in search of a suitable place to perform a yajna when the lotus he was holding fell from is hand and landed on the Earth. Miraculously a lake sprang up at the place where the Lotus touched the earth and Brahma considering it a good omen decided to perform his yagna and named the town as a flower in Hindi is ‘push’ and hand is ‘kar’, therefore the land was named Pushkar.
