Just sit around for a couple of hours. If there is enough dark around and the opposite side of the lake has enough lights, you can get pretty good a bokeh effect on your pictures. A good place to explore your SLR features :).

Recently visited pushkar, weather was fine, people were good and raining made it more pleasant. A must visit place, though road leading to and fro Ajmer is under construction and you might feel some difficulty.

I am not a Hindu and I am not aware about certain ceremonies but I was invited by one of the Brahmins to take part of the pray. It was very suggestive to do it and to repeat the chants that the Brahmin was saying made everything more emphatic. Everything in India has got a price and even here you... More

Lots of interesting pavilions around the lake. Cows and pigeons everywhere. Shoes and socks must be removed by the entrance. Avoid the guest houses around the lake, the temples around the lake play very loud music all night long and very loud.

Its a big lake with people having religious faith in the lake. Many people take bath here. I was not well so just splashed some water. Green coloured water.

The lake is at the heart of the town. It has a very vibrant history and please ensure you hear the story about the lake from a local guide or a pundit there. Just sitting at its banks of the lake is peaceful. However, having said that, please make sure you do not fall prey to the scams there. The... More

Pushkar generally is such a beautiful, laid back place. It made such a nice change from the fast pace of Delhi etc. it seems to revolve around the small, beautiful lake. You can easily spend a day exploring and people watching. Definitely stay for the 7pm (summer) or 5:30pm (winter) ceremony at the ghats. My one recommendation is to pay... More

This a sacred Hindu religious place coexisting peacefully together with a Muslim religious Dargha ,a small distance separating them in Ajmer.Say your prayers and have a dip in the lake.Also visit the only Brahma Temple close by.
