India's Western India
Its colorful legend precedes it; a story that tells of its lakes and their formation from the petals that fell from the divine hands of Brahma the Creator. To live up to such a reputation might prove quite a feat, yet Pushkar manages flawlessly. A peaceful pilgrim town adorned with serene lakes and more than 400 temples, one of which is the only temple in the country dedicated solely to Lord Brahma, Pushkar boasts a vibrant blend of spiritual significance and harmonious zeal to delight anyone who visits.
For a truly invigorating experience, explore the wonders of Pushkar during November when the Camel Fair spurs the city to life. Drawing livestock traders from across the globe, the Pushkar Camel Fair hosts a myriad of sights; from the camel wallahs and priests, to the sacred bathing rituals, to the thrilling camel races, the fair is sensory stimulation at its finest.
Should you visit when the collage of camels is vacant, explore the lakeside ghats, temples and always vibrant bazaars; or wait until evening when hundreds of oil lamps floating on green leaves create a glow against the reflection of the lake.
