Pushkar is a very special place. Like a mini-Veranassi, Pushkar is a peaceful pilgrim town of lakes and temples. There is the "Brahma" temple, the only one in the world dedicated to Brahma, so spiritual and sacred! Surrounded by the vibrant and colorful bazaar, the lake, created from the petals that fell from the divine hands of Brahma, is a... More

Pushkar lake is nice to see and walk on ghats, seeing lake. But please remain aware of Priests outside there, they want you to spend unnecessary, they force you to pay large sums of money for your good by the GOD. Pray with ur heart and stay blessed!

Pushkar lake is nice to see and walk on the ghats, but beware of the "priests" who will attempt to force you to pay large sums of money for a prayer ceremony that you didn't want. If you go through with it don't hand over more than 100Rs regardless of the complaining they do.

I stayed in Pushkar for 2 weeks and everyday I went to the lake to see the «priests» perform puja (prayers), or just to walk around. It is beautiful any time of day...

Pushkar Lake is a beautiful holy pilgrimage sight for Indians, and Hindus, but unfortunately for foreigners it is a completely different experience. It still provides a stunning backdrop with which to watch the sunset from the area near sunset cafe where all the traveling artisans practice their crafts to the beat of a local drummer. But, aside from this, my... More

Pushkar itself is very peaceful place and lake side sitting during early morning and evening sunset is very charming. Need to maintain and develop in a better way with tree plantation and giving natural feel.

One of the holy lake where you feel your soul is full of devotion... Local priest are very cunning and will tend you to donate a hefty sum.... but think twice.... even your taxi driver will get commission .... so better fix lump-sum "dakshina" before appointing any priest and donate to the authorized trust only..
