Once you pass all touts and pandit's trying to convince you to do a pooja for 100 bucks, we found Pushker late to be very clean with serene surroundings. There were very few folks around so it was quiet peaceful and with no touts to disturb at ghat, we thoroughly enjoyed our 30 minutes stay there.

You can just sit there to watch the sunrise, the bells and singing from temples takes you to another world... A quiet place to relax, surrounded by mountains and temples! You feel the peace, the holly, the world stops when you are there! Could stay there for hours without even realizing that time still exist... You can also see bats,... More

Just to reiterate the previous comments, do not get blessed at the lake. My friend and I were split up by the Brahmin priests and they blessed us and our families and this went on for about five minutes. They then asked us for about 4000 rupees as donation and there friends came over to harass us for the money,... More

Good energy, and you can feel the peoples devotion adding to it. Look out for scammers by one of the ghats who are talking bout donations for blessing you - not all are scammers though so dont be too quick to judge :). Enjoy!

Nice Calm Place to just sit and be at peace with yourself. This place has many ghats aswell which and very old and have a history associated with each. If one is too interested hire a guide who can run you thru the place well in a day.

I had an enjoyable stay in Pushkar, but was generally underwhelmed by both the lake and the city (I am not religious, and appreciate this is a holy site...but the whole place felt a bit 'plastic') I read many stories of people being bullied by priests by the lake, so prior to visiting my wife and I purchased a roll...

It one and only place having temple of God Brahma. Lake water is very muddy and very cold when I visited. People used to bath with this muddy water instead of clean water made available in different water block just before it.
