Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh are known as the Holy Trinity. When all three are worshipped, many get salvation and no pain or difficulty remains. They are the three forms of one divine form. There is only one Supreme God by whose wish universe is created, then nurtured and then the same universe is destroyed.
Lord Brahma is the first member of the holy triad, Vishnu being the second and Shiva, the third. Brahma is the god of creation and he is traditionally accepted as the Creator of the entire universe. The four Vedas are said to have merged from his head. The four casts of the Hindu dharma are also believed to have originated from Him - the Brahmins from his head, the Kshatriyas from his arms, the Vaishyas from his thighs, and the Shudras from his feet. All the living beings are said to have evolved from him. Depicted with four heads, four arms and bearded faces, He is said to have been born out of a lotus that grew out of the navel of Lord Vishnu. The Lord has in his four hands a water-pot (kamandal), a manuscript (Vedas), a sacrificial ladle (sruva) and a rosary (mala). He wears the hide of a black antelope and his vehicle is a Swan.
Vishnu, the preserver of creation, is the second God in the Hindu holy trinity. He preserves and maintains the cosmic order. Whenever an imbalance between the good and evil strikes, Vishnu battles with these evil forces or sends one of his incarnations to save the world. Some Puranic literature refers to him as the eternal, all-pervading spirit and associates him with the primeval waters believed to have been omnipresent before the creation of the world. So regarded, Vishnu is depicted frequently in human form, sleeping on the coils of the great serpent Shesh and floating on the waters of the cosmic ocean. In one hand, He holds a club, in another a conch shell, in the third, a discuss (Sudarshan Chakra) and in the fourth, a lotus.
Mahesh or Shiva is the third and final God in the Hindu holy trinity. He is said to be the God of destruction. He is known by many names like Mahadev, Pashupati, Bhairav, Nataraj, Rudra and many more. He is also called Tryambaka Dev (literally 'three-eyed Lord'). The third eye in the center of his forehead symbolizes His spiritual knowledge and power and is called the eye of knowledge. It burns evil and thus is feared by the evildoers. He is usually shown seated on the tiger skin.
The three gods represent the three fundamental powers of nature which are manifested in the world i.e. creation, maintenance and destruction. All three powers are manifested at all times. They are inseparable. Creation and destruction are like two sides of a coin. And maintenance is an integral part of the processes of creation and destruction. For example, morning dies to give birth to noon. Noon dies when night is born. In this chain of birth and death the day is maintained. To indicate that these three processes are one and the same the three gods are combined in one form of Lord Dattatreya. Lord Dattatreya has the faces of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva.
