Beware of Wife, she can curse the husband, even if he is a God himself.

Pushkar is a holy pilgrimage for Hindus. According to legend, Brahmaji selected this place for Tapa, after fall of lotus over this land. And when the Yagya muhurt came after thousands of years, Sarasvati didn't reach in time due to miscommunication by  Narada, the son of Lord Brahma and devotee of Lord Vishnu. Wife is needed to offer ahuti for the yagya, and the muhurta was going away, therefore Gayatri was married to Brahma to perform the Yagya. But wife is always wife, like a knife. She went away and stayed away up on the hill and angrily cursed Brahmaji, that he will be worshiped in Pushkar only.

The ancient temple with Chaturmukhi (four mouthed) Brahma is attracting thousands of pilgrims. People perform rituals in Pushkar lake. According to the legend, the lake was formed by the tears of Lord Shiva after the death of his wife Sati. 

It has 52 ghats, built by Kings and Shahukars. Now tube wells are the source of water for the lake. Another Buddha Pushkar lake is also dried up. Otherwise, it used to supply water to Ajmer and Jaipur in British days.
