The Pushkar Lake is a sacred site at which Hindu worshippers enter the water, sometimes after shedding clothes, for spiritual cleansing.

Adjacent to the water site are numerous shopping stalls where amazing bargains can be... More

This lake is located near the temple. It has several ghats. It's called Brahma tank. Devotees take bath in this lake before paying a visit to the lord in Brahma temple.

We visited the lake in the evening, it is an amazing place. At face value it is unremarkable, but it has an aura that touches your heart.

You really have to go here if you travel to Pushkar. It was very interesting seeing the pilgrims and all of their varied clothing. I was there for the fire ceremony (there is probably a better name for it than that). It was fascinating.
