The Pushkar Mela just got over a week back. We really had a good time and I thought I should write a few lines so some of you wishing to go can really make the most of your visit. A) try to visit the fair at the start than at the end. You will hit less crowds and more livestock... More

Beautiful to see from a far. You have to take your shoes up to walk along the ghats. Watch out for touts claiming to be "holy men" who will perform prayers with you then demand money.

Walking (without shoes) the entire loop around this holy lake-- with its countless temples--is best done early or late in the day. It takes about an hour and a half or more. Bathers, pilgrims and bird-life are abundant. This experience is at the heart of a trip to the holy city of Pushkar.

Visited the Lake at late night around 11 pm during the Pushkar Fair, the lake was completely quiet and we could hardly see someone there. The Lake had all the reflections of the lights and the moon. It has around 50-52 ghats for the purpose of bathing and other Hindu rituals. The lake is surrounded by the Aravalli Hills and... More

Well during my recent visit on Holy Pushkar lake, I felt very spiritual as I step down with a local Brahmin friend who conducts prayers for people coming from long distance places as this Pushkar sarovar is very energized, it is believed to be sin removal for the individual and his family, it also helps us in getting to higher...

A slightly seedy lake. Were "captured" by the Hindu priests who prayed for us and then attempted to relieve us of our hard earned by telling us how much money others gave them for the "poor". Soon gave us away when our puny offerings were seen!

The lake is quite serene. It looks really nice when you visit this place in evening or morning. Its best to avoid usual ghats where the priests will try to swindle you with offer of religious ceremony! Mind you these people are one the most savvy and hard sellers trying to lure you with counter offers that seem like harmless... More
