On the shore of this lake, lies the Pushkar city. The lake has much importance in Hindu mythology. A person should go to the lake first and then proceed towards Brahma Temple. The lake is quiet and serene and the whole ambience looks beautiful with hills surrounding the lake.

Lake is situated in the heart of the town, This place is on the walking distance from Brahma temple. when you pass through from the local market don't miss the Rabadi (Milk made Sweet) and Malpua (Sweet), this is the specialty of Pushkar. Though lake area is not clean but visiting in evening could be good experience.

Pushkar is a small town and with its name you associate - The Pushkar mela (camel fair), the Pushkar lake and Brahma's temple. These places attract the tourists. Pushkar is close to Ajmer, so a combined visit to Durgah and Pushkar in one day (1D/1N) is sufficient. While visiting the lake, take note of the pandas who will make you... More

He has done an excellent massage. I have felt a fresh condition, relax and energy after that. Also, you can take really truthful recommendations from him after the massage. It's really deep effect!

You can't visit Pushkar and miss the lake! It is so beautiful and tranquil - worth hanging around for sunset too :)

The lake is a lovely haven away from all the fakery of the market and hippies that infest this town. You are not allowed to wear shoes when walking around the lake and you'll need to be careful or the fake rituals they'll make you pay for if you accept a flower from the locals. Also you don't need to... More
