Brahma Mandir Architecture
Brahma performed a yajna to expiate the curse he was subjected to by Savitri who felt offended by him. At the completion of the yajna, Vishwamitra established this temple.

Brief of the Deity:
With the idol of Lord Brahma (the father of all beings), there is also enshrined the idol of Gayatri. Besides, other idols of gods and goddesses are there.Brahma is the first member of the Hindu triad.He represented the supreme spirit mamifested as the active creator of the universe. He sprang from the mundance egg deposited by the supreme first cause he is the Prajapati or Lord and Father of all creation . He is sad to be of red color . He has four head . Originally he had five heads but was burnt by shiva .

The temple, which is set on high plinth, is approached through a number of marble steps leading to an entrance gate archway, decorated with pillared canopies. The entry from the gate leads to a pillared outdoor hall (Mandapa) and then the sanctum sanctorum (Garbhagriha). The temple is built with stone slabs and blocks, joined together with molten lead.

The red shikara (spire) of the temple and symbol of a hamsa (a swan or goose) - the mount of Brahma – are distinct features of the temple. The shikara is about 700 feet (210 m) in height. The hamsa motif decorates the main entry gate. Marble floor (in black and white checks) and walls inside the temple have been inlaid with hundreds of silver coins by devotees (with their names inscribed), as mark of offering to Brahma. There is a silver turtle in the mandap that is displayed on the floor of the temple facing the Garbhagriha, which is also built in marble. The marble flooring has been replaced from time-to-time.

Brahma's central icon (murti) made of marble was deified in the garbhagriha in 718 AD by Adi Shankara. The icon depicts Brahma, seated in a crossed leg position in the aspect of creation of the universe (the Vishvakarma form). The central image is called the chaumurti ("four-faced idol"). It is of life size with four hands, four faces, each oriented in a cardinal direction.

The four arms hold the akshamala (rosary), the pustaka (book), the kurka (kusha grass) and the kamandalu (water pot). Brahma is riding on his mount, the hamsa.

The four symbols held by Brahma in his arms: the rosary, Kamandalu, book and the sacrificial implement kusha grass represent time, the causal waters from which the universe emerged, knowledge and the system of sacrifices to be adopted for sustenance of various life-forms in the universe. Gayatri's image sits along with Brahma's in centre to his left. Savatri alias Sarasvati sits to the right of Brahma, along with other deities of the Hindu pantheon. Images of the peacock, Sarasvati's mount, also decorate the temple walls. Images of the preserver-god Vishnu, life-sized dvarapalas (gate-keepers) and a gilded Garuda (eagle-man, mount of Vishnu) are also seen in the temple.

Jagatpita Shri Brahma Mandir(Temple): This is the only existing Temple dedicated to Lord Brahma. Built in the 14th century, it stands on a high plinth with marble steps leading up to it. A silver turtle is set on the floor facing the sanctum-sanctorum or garbha-griha. Around the turtle, the marble floor is inset with hundreds of silver coins. Coins engraved with donors 'names are also embedded in the walls.

Peococks adorn the temple walls as they are supposed to be the vehicle of Lord Brhama's consort Saraswati. A small image of the milkmaid Gayatri, flanks the four-faced image of Lord Brhma and is called Chaumurti. The sanctuary has silver doors inside a carved marble gateway. Steps in a corner lead down to a small cave with a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.

Like the architecture of Somnath temple, here also stone slabs and blocks were joined together with smolten lead.
