Located in Rajasthan, the holy city of Pushkar is perhaps most famous as being home to the lone Brahma temple in India, although the city has even more to offer. The city is served by the airport in Jaipur, which is about three hours away by car. Once in Pushkar, there are many options for guesthouses and hotels, most of which are located near the important sites that make Pushkar the center of religious tourism.
Not surprisingly, the Brahma Temple
gets the lion’s share of visitors to this city. As this temple is one of the very few in the world that are specifically dedicated to the Hindu Lord Brahma, and that makes it an important religious site for many visitors. The Savitri Temple
nearby is also a popular follow-up, as its dedicated to the wife of Brahma and is therefore the second-most important temple in the city.
Outside of religious significance, Pushkar is also home to a beautiful mountainous region that has been accented by the Pushkar Lake, providing some spectacular lookout points and photo opportunities for those so inclined.
