One Legends states when Devi Sati died Lord Shiva cried and shed off the tears. From his tears emerged two water ponds one at Pushkar and other at Ketaksha (raining eyes) or Katasraj temple in Chakwal district of Punjab in Pakistan. Pushkar is one of the oldest cities in India and legend is associated with Lord Brahma and creation.
Although there several other legends but most of them are associated with Lord Brahma, the creator of Universe. According to the Ancient Texts there was demon called Vajranabha who tried to kill children of Lord Brahma . Lord Brahma enraged with these activiteis slew the demon with his weapon Blue Lotus Flower. The petal of this flower fell in the ground where water sprang up making a lake named Pushkar Sarovar by Lord Brahma.
