Anybody residing in India would be well aware of Pushkar Lake. It is considered to be a holy lake that attracts a lot of pilgrims who come here to carry out their religious rites. The lake is close to the famous temple of Sri Brahma, one of the very few in India. This was a place where Lord Brahma (the creator of this world) prayed with Mata Savitri. What makes this lake conspicuous that it is surrounded by 52 bathing Ghats and more than 500 Hindu temples are situated around its borders. Pilgrims throng in large numbers to take a sacred bath here, especially around Kartik Poornima (October–November) when the Pushkar Fair is held. A dip in the sacred lake is believed to cleanse sins and cure skin diseases. Apart from its religious significance, this lake also adds beauty to the city of Pushkar in Ajmer.

The holy town of Pushkar is one of the most revered places by the Hindus and is often called as the ‘ King of pilgrimage sites’. The lake is said to have been created by the blessings of Lord Brahma and the surrounding city is one of the oldest in India. The city of Pushkar is also known for its Brahma temple, one of the few sites in the world dedicated to the Hindu god of creation.
Big, calm and serene place. Can just sit and enjoy the view for long time. There are also lots of small fish in the water and people swimming nearby. Lots of pigeons also flying around. Overall is a good visit to get a piece of mind.
Peaceful, Historical Lake With Important Place For Hindu Community. Evening Spent On Various Ghats Give Instant Peace To Your Soul And Mind.
