Pushkar Travel Guide

Located on the shores of Pushkar Lake, the little pilgrim town of Pushkar, in Rajasthan, is one of the renowned religious places for Hindus. Although it is merely 11 kms from Ajmer, Pushkar, transports you to another world as you drive on the road from Ajmer that crosses a pass in the Aravalli Hills called Nag Parbat (Snake Mountain), and leads you to the peaceful temple town of Pushkar set by its side. Today this quaint town of Pushkar is popular for its annual Pushkar fair that invites thousands of visitors not only from all over the country but also from all over the world.

Take a ritual dip in the holy Pushkar Lake – believed to have sprung up when a lotus petal fell from the hand of Lord Brahma, the Creator. Must visit atleast once in a lifetime!

Visit the world’s largest Cattle (Camel) fair at the famous Pushkar Fair (Mela) in the month of November/ December on the banks of the Pushkar Lake.
