Aishwarya Rai offers prayers in Pushkar

Dec 28, 2006 IANS

Jaipur, Dec 28 (IANS) Bollywood's glamour queen Aishwarya Rai Thursday visited the Hindu pilgrim town of Pushkar and offered prayers at the famous Brahma temple.

"Aishwarya Rai came here in the morning and offered her prayers at the Lord Brahma temple," a temple priest told IANS on telephone.

Pushkar, 140 km from here, has the only temple dedicated to Brahma, the Hindu god of creation, which was built in the 14th century. The town also has a lake that is considered holy by the Hindus.

Aishwarya's visit, however, charged up the serene atmosphere of the pilgrim town. There was commotion as priests fought among themselves to decide who would offer puja for the actress.

The priests were not amused when Aishwarya's security personnel tried to quieten them. Some of them said the guards were drunk.

The actress had offered prayers at the famous Sankat Mochan temple of Varanasi in neighbouring Uttar Pradesh Nov 27 along with superstar Amitabh Bachchan and his son Abhishek.

Aishwarya reportedly visited the shrine of Sufi saint Moinuddin Chisti in Ajmer Thursday, but the dargah committee refused to confirm or deny the reports.

The actress has been spending time in Jaipur shooting for Ashutosh Gowrikar's mega epic "Jodha-Akbar", starring her and Hrithik Roshan in the lead roles.
