A very good place for the spiritual traveller - many temples, a holy town. Great to see Marwari horses and camels at the early part of Pushkar Fair.
Extremely interesting shops and sights on the walk through the town. I recommend having a camel ride, too.
Visit for the Brahma temple and lake if you are a believer. Unplanned and chaotic development has destroyed the historic charm of the town.
Despite a member of our group being a practising Hindu, they were excluded from most Hindu temples. Admittance seemed to be based on caste.
I would not choose to visit again. The only exception was the lovely calm Sikh temple
Calm & Peaceful City . Built between the hills . Good place to relax , especially Couples who wishes to spend time together , enjoy historic architecture.
Religious & Surreal Environment. Surely not for Travelers who are looking for Nightlife or Modern City. Old Small city from some folk tales or stories about India.
Although Pushkar is basically known for the camel trade fair every year it is an interesting alternative for travellers in India that do not want to follow the usual tourist routes during the off-season.
There are plenty of Indian tourists but not Western tourists who make the whole experience much fun (and cheaper if you know how to negotiate) and if staying at the Foot Hills Resorts you should have a great time.
Pushkar is an oasis with much religious ritual around lovely lake Sarovar.There are lots of animals,camels,cattle,peacocks monkeys,beautiful birds.
Diwali festival was very noisy with firework explosions disturbing peace.Best to visit another time.Some good veg.food,try Nature's Blessing and Blue star,on Panch khund road.Buy rose water and flower Attars,old silk recycled.Check prices of basic items,some people inflate prices for foreigners.
Pushkar fair is a big attraction when large number of tourists come from various countries to see the event.
Pushkar is an enchanted city surrounding a beautiful lake whose shores are lined with temples. There are travellers and pilgrims from many places visiting to soak up the rich experience.
There is shopping in the souveneer shops where you can buy jewellery and clothing at very cheap prices.
GREAT yoga at Pushkar Yoga garden. It is a 10 minute walk out of town, but a rickshaw can take you there and you can ask them to pick you up in an hour and a half.
we really enjoyed our yoga class . We also an excellent meal at The Sixth sense restaurant which is part of the Seventh Heaven Inn. this accommodation looks really nice, and we wish we had stayed here.
Full of western travelers but don't let that put you off. There is a nice atmosphere and everyone is friendly.
You'll get 'mugged' by one of the priests on the ghats but don't worry it happens to everyone.
