The ale and floating palace are amazing and I hope they do try and save it as it's currently sinking. I suggest going around sunset as the light is amazing and gat for photos. I suggest getting a driver who can drop you off and let you concentrate on the lake.

If you are at Pushkar, you cannot avoid visiting the lake. This is the central feature of this very small temple town.

Very beautiful lake. Very beautiful lake. But take care with people trying to "force" you to donate. They start with a conversation about a festival day and respect. To throw flowers on the lake... after that, they take you until the lake and started to pray... and then, they try to convince you to donate your money. If you want... More

Visited with my wife on a full day's trip after visiting Ajmer. A prearranged guide took us to the holy Sarovar and explained the significance of Pushkar and the sarovar. A priest started performing pooja for us on the banks of the sarovar but he was more concerned about the donation amount right from the word go, than the actual... More

Felt like a great place has been tarnished by a tourism scam, avoid anything to do with donating flowers to the temple and the lake. Our tour guide seemed nice at first, but ultimately me and two friends were lead into a scam, involving donating the most you could afford at that present time or even insisting transferring money by...

It was lovely to wonder around the ghats, the market, the temples and enjoy this quiet yet vibrant atmosphere, observing the people, the colours and the sun shining on the water. Good place to meditate and reflect.

Pushkar is usually known for the great pushkar mela held in nov/dec. What is lesser known is the importance of visiting pushkar and having a holy dip and performing puja on the banks of pushkar lake during Purushottam month. This is the 13th month in an otherwise 12 month hindu calendar and this occurs once every 3 years. I had... More

Pushkar Lake is a sacred lake, feels divine coming here but I belong to a city which is called city of lakes and where lakes are so very well maintained that we can be proud of. Pushkar is also known for its lake but not been maintained as required.
