Dear all, This is a beautiful lake but beware of english speaking priests that want to provide some history. They will offer you hold rose petals in your hand while he speaks. DO NOT TAKE THEM! Think of a car salesperson that does not want you to leave the lot without selling a car to you. Same thing. Just say... More

Like all religious places and sacred rivers, the Pushkar lake is in urgent need of attention. I would say this was the biggest disappointment during our visit to Pushkar. I had completely different expectations from this place.

The experience was great for me, apart from one thing. If you are not Indian the so called Pandits will perform a puja for you and then ask you to bless their family by giving them 1000 rupees and then they will try to get you to donate 2000 - 10000 more by saying some rubbish about the food costing...

The lake is about 10 kilometers from Ajmer in Rajasthan, India. This is a rare place in india where god is not worshiped but the chastity of lake is important

Liked the evening Aarti. The market surrounding the lake is also very good, lively and colourful. The lake area is also maintained well.

This lake is only meant for religious activity. Apart from that it serves no other purpose. It is a very small lake and not very clean either. You can see people taking religious bath.
