about pushkar lake

Pushkar Lake had is termed as tirthraj or the King of all pilgrimage spots across India. It's one of the most sacred water bodies for the Hindus and a dip in the lake is believed to purge humans of all their sins, and even skin diseases. It's surrounded by a whopping 52 ghats, that lead to it. The crowds of devotees swell to an amazing number on the day of Karthik Purnima, that's usually in November or October, as people from all across the world come willing to take a dip. Adding more to the religious value of the Pushkar Lake are a number of temples around it, cited at more than 500. Standing tall on the horizon of the lakeside are the Aravalli hills. Some facts link the lake's history to as far back as the 4th century, with its evidence being found on coins dating back to that era.
