First to the holy shrine of the Temple. And it's all money - cash to the guy who looked after my shoes, payment for a bowl of flower petals for sacrifice or donation or whatever (half at the Temple; remainder at the Holy Lake.) - and, of course, payment to the guide - and shedloads to the priest at the...

After hearing about the holiness of Pushkar lake and the pilgrimages people make to bathe in the ghats, I was sorely disappointed to see that it was swamped with fake Brahman priests, banana pancakes and store after store selling souvenirs and hippy pants. While the lake was beautiful, I could hardly enjoy it watching the "Brahman priests" take tourists down... More

Not too bad if you fancy walking around in urine and excrement in your socks, although admittedly, most of it is dry...This spot is nice and scenic and the ghats are a nice place to sit and watch the goings on, although there is a ridiculously large amount of people offering their blessings and Indian men standing around in their...

The town itself is very much a backpacker place with lots of clothing stores etc. The ghats and temples around the lake are interesting to see, but you will be accosted by "priests" trying to put petals in your hands and drag you to the lake for a blessing or ceremony. They are very aggressive and demand a donation. And... More

Sitting on the steps of the ghat and enjoying the most beautiful sunsets ever. Just that will make your trip worthwhile

This is definitely one holy place one must visit irrespective of their religious beliefs. If you take a guide he will take you through the place explain the mythological story and make you take a dip in so called holy lake. Dnt know about the holy beliefs but the water is so dirty that certainty will get some illness. So... More

We went to Pushkar for NYE'16 and directly reached the lake during Sunset. It has an amazing view of the lake in the foreground and sunset in the background. Good crowd was gathered - locals, tourist, foreigners. The cafes on the periphery were loud with their upbeat/EDM music..one isnt allowed to smoke/drink alongside the lake and ghats. It has a...

This holy lake is full of Hindu devootee ,bharamins who want to make expensive pooja,and lots of sadhu but beside that it was a fantastic place to watch sunset through the arawali mountain.
