Symbolism

Brahma is seen wearing red clothes and depicted as a deity having four heads, faces and arms each. His four heads are continuously reciting verses from the four Vedas Four ancient texts constituting the oldest layer of Sanskrit literature and the oldest scriptures of Hinduism(Sanskrit texts containing philosophies). They also stand for Four Vedas (Rig, Yajur, Atharva, Sama) and four castes (Brahmana, Kshatriya, Vaisya, Sudra). His hands symbolize the four directions and stand for mind, intellect, ego and self-confidence. His eyes are closed in meditation. Unlike other Gods, he doesn’t hold any weapon thus only playing the role of a creator and doesn’t destroy anything. He holds a prayer bead, book and gold symbolizing his continuous creation of the universe with the use of his intellect.

His carrier is swan which stands for grace and his crown is the token of his authority. Finally, his beard denotes his wisdom. He is also believed to possess the magical ability by which he can separate water from milk.

Brahma’s Temples

Though he is one of the major deities in Hindu mythology, there are not many temples dedicated to Brahma in comparison to Shiva and Vishnu. The most prominent temple is in Pushkar where a religious yearly festival is held in the name of Brahma in the month of Kartik (October-November). Some of the ancient temples are situated in Kullu (Himachal Pradesh), Asotra (Rajasthan), Thiruvananthapuram (Kerala) and Khedbrahma (Gujrat).
