We spent hours sitting and watching the worshippers,had dinner not far away during amazing sunset . We went down at Brahmah gat . Colorful and interesting. Beware of "fake" Sado who push in your hand flowers and offering yo take you for a "pho ja" and later demanding a "donation"

Pushkar is one of the famous tourist destination cum hindu religious sacred place located around 12 km from Ajmer. We can reach this place by online cabs like uber. it's more like a hilly area hence the travel expenses will be a bit more compared to the city. We have to walk a short distance to reach the lake, where... More

Pushkar lake is located just few steps walk away from the Brahma Temple. This is a sacred lake and it's believed to be auspicious to take bath in this lake. Devotees usually take bath in this lake before visiting the Brahma Temple. Visitors can be seen along with Pandits on the bank of the lake offering prayers.

Pushkar Lake is called Theertharaj. Raja of all therrthas. Must take a dip here. Let your sins dissolve and emerge with blessings of Lord Brahma.

First to the holy shrine of the Temple. And it's all money - cash to the guy who looked after my shoes, payment for a bowl of flower petals for sacrifice or donation or whatever (half at the Temple; remainder at the Holy Lake.) - and, of course, payment to the guide - and shedloads to the priest at the...

After hearing about the holiness of Pushkar lake and the pilgrimages people make to bathe in the ghats, I was sorely disappointed to see that it was swamped with fake Brahman priests, banana pancakes and store after store selling souvenirs and hippy pants. While the lake was beautiful, I could hardly enjoy it watching the "Brahman priests" take tourists down... More

Not too bad if you fancy walking around in urine and excrement in your socks, although admittedly, most of it is dry...This spot is nice and scenic and the ghats are a nice place to sit and watch the goings on, although there is a ridiculously large amount of people offering their blessings and Indian men standing around in their...

The town itself is very much a backpacker place with lots of clothing stores etc. The ghats and temples around the lake are interesting to see, but you will be accosted by "priests" trying to put petals in your hands and drag you to the lake for a blessing or ceremony. They are very aggressive and demand a donation. And... More
