Good to see a lake in the desert state of Rajasthan. White houses surrounding the lake give a nice view. Its a lake with a history as old as Hinduism

Pushkar is a holy place for Hindus, so there's plenty of shops & places to eat there, to cater for the pilgrims that visit, as well as the tourists. Having said that - it still has a small town feel & is very calm when compared to most places in India. The lake area is peaceful & has a nice... More

Not so much a lake as a concrete reservoir. It significance would be "spiritual" aspect of the temples and ghats surrounding it. Personally, like much of india, it seems to have turned into more of a marketing area than anything spiritual, but i guess its in the eye of the beholder.

Prepared to be badgered by people who give you flowers to put in the lake and follow you to turn you over to a fake priest for a sham ceremony and then really badgered for money

It is the ideal spot to walk a little down the Jaipur Ghat, soak in the sights and sounds of the place while watching the sun set. It brings so much calm and peace, making stillness so rich.

A spiritual place to visit. Nice lake with good views. There are several ghats for pujas. The moment you enter the area, you feel divine. However, cleanliness is less, and commercialization is more.

This is a review of two main attractions in this atmospheric city -- Pushkar. The first is the holy Lake and Ghats, one of the holiest places in the Hindu faith. Our hotel overlooked the Lake and hence we were able to witness the Poojas and other activities . A walk around the entire circumferance of the Lake is also... More

Whats the big deal about Puskar? Its a dirty looking lake with no appeal. Too many animals, its like walking around a farm. Lots of little shops with all the same stuff. Daughter found these ok. Could not wait to leave.
