Pushkar is a lovely religious town in the middle of the desert. It is a heaven of peace and tranquillity if you are coming from big metropolis as Delhi, Agra or Jaipur.
Pushkar is one of the most visited towns in Rajasthan and holds the largest camel market in the world during the October or November full moon.
Life happens around the lake ghats, sacred temples and main bazaar market stalls.
Accommodation in Puskhar is not a problem as there a hundreds of basic and cheap guesthouses. Some of them offer great views of the lake from their rooftops.
Brahmaji Mandir temple is located at the west of the Puskhar Lake.
The temple has an image of Brahma who according to legend threw a lotus flower to earth and formed 3 lakes where the petals landed.
Best thing to do in Puskhar is to stroll around the lake visiting the numerous temples and ghats and watch the pilgrims worship at the lake shore.
There are also lots of fauna by the lake, the local cows, monkeys and pigeons have an easy life here.

    I really loved out time in Pushkar. Thought the ghats were so much nicer - definitely cleaner - than in Varanasi! Beautiful, colorful photos!
