We went to Pushkar as a day trip from Ajmer. It was a nice day out and the lake and surrounding ghats were nice to wander around. There are a lot of people trying to sell you things but if you politely decline they didn't push.

We were encouraged to take a stroll along the lake....but the whole atmosphere is just disappointing. Too many touts, pushing flowers on you, harassing you.....we walked very quickly to the lake, took some photos and left just as quick. Without the touts, it would have been nice to wander the streets and the lake.

Only abode or temple of Lord Bramha, Pushkar has one of the unique mystical and spiritual value. Unlike Ajmer Town, Pushkar, which is around 11 kms, on a slightly hilly road, is a neater and cleaner hamlet. You would find make-shift guides near the toll entrance around one hundred rupee, whee they will take you both to the lake as... More

Wish Indians were more conscious of their heritage and adhere to the rules. Everyone solicits so be firm in your no. Went around the lake and spent the evening there. Felt at peace in some of the less crowded ghats. Do shop around the streets and get goods that are cheaper then Jaipur or jodhpur

Pushkar is one of the most polluted and filthy towns in India. There really isn't much to see at the lake and you have to avoid the fake holy men and people trying to sell you random things! A lady tried to sell us grass to feed her cows... Insane! If you're on your way from Jaipur to Jodhpur by... More

Pushkar has many temples. Most of the temples are not very old because many temples were destroyed during Muslim conquests in the area.[1] Subsequently, the destroyed temples were rebuilt. The most famous among all is the Brahma Temple built during the 14th century CE. The Pushkar lake has 52 ghats where pilgrims descend to the lake to bathe in the... More

nothing much to do except seeing the view... unless you are a follower of the same religion so you can practice the rituals. if not and it happens that there are some Pilgrims doing the rituals you can watch them on the lake
