the lake view is amazing, you can take holy dip in any of the ghat, prefer to take near by mandir . Don't listen for anyone who ask for offerings , mantra,,etc. just have a holy dip go to temple , its just 5 mins walk from here. PHOTO GRAPHY IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED, SO PLEASE AVOID TAKING PICTURES AT GHAT

This lake is the center point of attraction in Pushkar. All settlement in pushkar is around this lake. I don't recommend taking bath or dip in this lake, as water is not clean. But, several people does that, saying it's holy water.

The holy lake can only be holy if there were no scammers. Be firm and say no when asked to donate money to the so called priests.

So the lake is the biggest attraction of Pushkar, that being said here is how we beat the touts and scammers around the lake. If you are foreigner you will have to deal with the unfamiliarity of the holy place with scammers trying take advantage of you. 1) Don't accept the flowers they try to put in your hand. It's... More

I was carrying a nice image of pushkar lake in my memories from my childhood when i had visited this place.
