Have to go to the lake especially at sunset, follow the sounds of the drums where you even learn how to play the rajasthani drums... If you want a relaxing massage ask around at Sunset Point for Deepak Ayurveda.. such a relaxing massage where he will be able to read your energy and tell you things that can help you... More

Pushkar lake is supposed to be a spiritual place but unfortunately it's crawling with people who claim to be Brahman trying to take advantage of you by giving you free flowers and/or trying to insist you give them donations. Beware when anyone tries to give you something for free. Best rule of thumb is don't go for it unless you're... More

Pushkar is a beautiful lake city famous for the only Brahma temple in the world. The walk to the temple through the street lined with absolutely stunning stuff at mind blowing prices is definitely an attraction for the shoppers. All in all a great day visit !

We took a drive from Ajmer to Pushkar. You can take a halt in the mid and get clicked. The lake is a must visit if you are in Pushkar. Sit on its banks and feel the serenity.

Beware of so called sadus approaching you. They put flowers in your hand lead you to the waters edge, give you a blessing ask you to name your children and grandchildren, ask you to promise to respect the lake, ask you to promise to respect the area and ask you to promise to give 2,000 rupees to them. I altered... More

... be careful with those who will invite you to pray on the side of the Lake. They will ask you money. And it's ok. But they won't ask rupees. You have to pay in your currency. Really unfair. Be careful and enjoy the spirit of the place.

I loved this lake. It is up there with one of my favourite lakes. Serene & peaceful. Lovely for a prayer & contemplation. My tour guide Mukesh Dolya helped with the history behind the lake.

An amazing holy place full of magic and wonder. I visited on a photo trip to capture images around the lake and it didn't disappoint. The only downside was the no photography policy of bathing people which was a shame because it's such a beautiful ritual, but I respect their wishes. I wouldn't want to be photographed while I bathe.... More

We wished we had read trip advisor first! We were lambs to the slaughter! Out of 3 weeks travelling this was the only bad experience - the so called holy men try to rip you off and guilt trip you into 'donating' thousands of rupees. They helpfully suggested that my friend could use a credit card!! if you go to... More
