PUSHKAR " The blessing of Lord Brahma"
11 Kms. from Ajmer on the edge of the desert lies the tiny tranquil town of Pushkar along the bank of the picturesque Pushkar Lake - an important pilgrimage spot. The lake has a mythological significance associated with it. According to myth, Lord Brahma was on his way to search for a suitable place to perform a 'Yagna' (a fire sacrifice). While contemplating, a lotus fell from his hand on the earth and water sprouted from three places. One of them was Pushkar, where Lord Brahma performed his Yagna. Surrounded by hills on three sides, Pushkar abounds in temples. Of these the most famous is the Brahma Temple - the only temple dedicated to Lord Brahma in the country. The holy lake has 52 ghats and pilgrims taking a ritual dip in the lake are a common sight.
Pushkar Fair - Citadel of Culture, Colours & Camels
Every year thousands of devotees throng around the full moon day of Kartik Purnima in October - November to take a holy dip in the lake. A huge and colorful cattle fair - called the Pushkar fair is held during this time. A host of cultural events against the backdrop of this pretty setting are organised like folk dances and puppet shows. Cattle auction and camel races are also a part of the festivities.
