About Pushkar Lake, Pushkar
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.

A Divine, Serene place to go and feel the holiness of Pushkar. Surrounded by more than 500 Temples of Hindu god and goddesses.

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.
Nice , calm place to visit . There are many ghats for the Pushkar Lake . All the ghats are pretty much same as per the view. When you visit the lake , don't sit with your feet immersed in the lake water, the locals there get angry on this activity.
Amazing experience I have sitting on the ghat of pushkar lake. Silent place, you can sit here upto hours & feel the peace here. The only thing which I feel that Ghats needs improvement in terms of cleanliness.
Clean and spiritual place. Narrow roads outside lake. Too many shops and restaurants there. You can get anything but locals looted there if you are unaware of prices. Many restaurants have great view of Pushkar lake. If you want to visit go there by foot so you can visit easily and everything in market.
