Most sacred after the Ganges, the Pushkar Sarovar is said to be the birthplace of Lord Brahmaa ((Creator of the Universe). The renowned Brahmaa Temple, the Ranganatha Temple, the Tapovana Ashramas are very popular even among foreigners. The Hindu Pilgrimage is never complete without a Holi dip in the Pushkar Sarovar. Good hotels and resorts available at reasonable rates. The... More

Its a pilgrimage place for Hindus. Its on the way to Brahma temple and you can see it on the left side through the gaps between the shops. I will not call it a clean place.

We reached this place towards late afternoon in a cold December after a long journey from Mount Abu to Pushkar. But the moment we reach Pushkar Lake in front of Brahma the breathtaking beauty and calmness of the place takes breath out of us. Very nice place to visit you can just spend quite time looking into the lake. Also... More

Pushkar is an interesting and overpriced town. There is a toll onthe road to get into town. Definitely out to get the tourists - beware of "the friendly people near the temple and the lake" it is all about getting lots of money from you, and I mean thousands of $ not rupees. They make you chant and agree to... More

The views are beautiful and there is a lot to see. You can relax here for an hour or so and there's plenty of bars overlooking the lake. You can get a river blessing for about 100 rupees which is very nice and gives a lot or memories

It's a special and holy place for Indian people. Nice to visit. Beware of the people trying to sell things to you. Lot's of unfriendly people who are just after your money...like in so many places in India

We stopped here for an hour or so on our way from Jaipur to Johdpur. Left to wander round the town ourselves we did not feel hassled at all and made our way to the Holy Lake where we were able to watch the bathers and prayers. The couple we were with even took part in a prayer with flowers... More

Excellent experience! My wife and I were a little skeptical when Deepak approached as we passed his place because it is India. But everything changed after he told us something about our character after he only touched a few points in our palms. All right things! We then arrange an appointment and massage itself. Massage was very pleasant and thorough,... More

We visited this Hindu holy site consisting of picturesque spring-fed naturally formed lake surrounded by 52 ghats representing the weeks of the year. The lake is always full of water even during drought which is a regular occurrence in Rajasthan. Hindus perform puja here as one of the 3 holy sites and is considered by many that it gives them...
