The lake is our favourite place in pushkar.one can sit on the bank of the lake and can have very spiritual felling with sadhu on the back side of the lake. Only down side was the priest who hassle you to make pooja.

We spend our early morning and evening hours by the lake. The experience was amazing. My sister and I loved the calmness and quietude of the place. Especially the Pushkar Aarti in the evening which is an annual affair. The whole affair was serene. Sitting by the water with hill in the backdrop and pigeons taking flight, everything about this...

The view over there could be awsome there by sunset but everybody there offers u aggressively flowrs for free, then sit with u and after their blessing demand for a donation of 500, 1000 ruppees or more.

The Pushkar Lake is the lifeline of Pushkar. There are many roof top restaurants offering the beautiful view of the lake. In the evening there is arti which is really beautiful and must attend. You can take a dip into the lake if you want (we didn't). There is a lot of crowd so best yo visit an hour before... More

The Pushkar Lake is a sacred site at which Hindu worshippers enter the water, sometimes after shedding clothes, for spiritual cleansing. I was unable to visit Varanasi so I was privileged to observe this practice at Pushkar. Because of its sacred nature, photography is strictly forbidden. Adjacent to the water site are numerous shopping stalls where amazing bargains can be... More

This lake is located near the temple. It has several ghats. It's called Brahma tank. Devotees take bath in this lake before paying a visit to the lord in Brahma temple.
