It one and only place having temple of God Brahma. Lake water is very muddy and very cold when I visited. People used to bath with this muddy water instead of clean water made available in different water block just before it.

Enjoyed our day at Pushkar strolling through the market and visiting the lake. People generally are friendly and not too pushy. Large Leather bag shop on the entry to market had better quality bags than we saw in shops in Jaipur and surrounds. Bargain hard. Lake itself was slightly disappointing for me as if expected it to be more beautiful... More

When i reached this place i realised , i am in a different world, basically i came to a conclusion that this is a mini india within india. Beautiful, serene, peaceful, holy, enchanting mantras all around the beautiful ghat, hippies all around, cozy cafes with beautiful interiors and ambience, the place where you can look forward to stay for months,...

Hot days, time for a wash! This is the first concrete lake I've seen and looks more like a reservoir than lake. There are many ghats surrounding the lake and people to pray and worship as well as wash. We enjoyed just sitting in an open area and relaxing from the crowds. But hey, it means a lot to many...

we already heard some scam in this lake, but I did not expect to run into one on my first step down the stairs. A hindrance rush to us trying to give a free flower for something we did not care, so we declined, but the guy was very persistence. I had to say, no thank you, like 5 times,... More

We decided to walk down some quiet steps to see the lake and were immediately told off for showing disrespect. We had no idea what we did wrong - turns out we were meant to go down the next set of steps where you get hassled and people try and take cash off you at every turn. Don't bother.
