About Naga Pahar, Pushkar

Translated as the snake mountain, it is the Nag Pahar that separates the town of Ajmer from that of Pushkar. According to the local belief, this mountain was originally of a colossal height, though with the passage of time its height kept on decreasing. It is also believed that one day the mountain will disappear altogether leaving no trace of its existence. As per the Hindu mythology, this hill houses a Nag Kund where Vatu, Brahma's son had lived after he was cursed by Rishi Chyavan for committing mischief. The visitors usually visit this mountain to have a look at a cave that is supposed to be Agastya muni's residence. A visit to both this mountain and the Kund is considered extremely auspicious to ward off evil, as per the scriptures.

Apart from its religious significance, this mountain also offers beautiful views of the Pushkar city and its surroundings.
