Gayatri MataPushkar is one of the oldest pilgrim places of India. Pushkar means born due to a flower. In Hindu mythology it is said that Brhama wanted to perform yagna on the earth and thought that there should be  place on the earth where people can worship him. Keeping this in view he threw a lotus flower on the earth and thought that a yagna will be there.The place where lotus fell was called Pushkar.

Gurudev Acharya Shri Ram Sharma ji visited Pushkar from 27th December,1980 to 31st December,1980 and stayed there. During his stay he established a Gayatri Shaktipeeth at Pushker.A idol of Goddess Gayatri was also layed down in the temple and pran pratestha of idol was done by him.
