The holy land of Pushkar has a lot to offer in terms of tourism, religion, food and much more. Make a list in advance so that you don't forget a single activity and consequently save yourself from all those stupid regrets.

  • Remember, Pushkar is considered one of the five ‚ÄòDhams' in Hinduism, the others being Badrinath,Rameswaram, Puri and Dwarka. Taking a dip in Pushkar Lake, sanctified by Lord Brahma Himself, is said to take a devotee towards his salvation. Try making a visit during November when the town is immersed in the colours and festivities of the world-famous Pushkar Fair.
  • At the Varah Ghat, there is organized a daily prayer with prayers, bell-chimes and lamps making the atmosphere almost other-worldly. Do visit.

  • If learning the various asanas of Yoga and learning to meditate is on your wish-list, then the various ghats (there are as many as 52)in the town will serve as an appropriate platform.
  • Do visit Sri Brahmaji Temple, the only temple in the world dedicated to the Creator of the world, Lord Brahma.
  • The long march up the Ratnagiri Hill to reach Savitri temple is the ideal path for hiking-lovers.
  • Do try the authentic Rajasthani cuisines and sweets like ghewar and dal batti churma.

Make your trip to Pushkar a memorable one.
