About Pushkar

Pushkar is a town in the Ajmer district of Rajasthan, situated 14 km northwest of Ajmer. For a devout Hindu, Pushkar is a very important pilgrim centre. According to the legend, Pushkar means a pond created by flower. It is believed to have been formed when Brahma dropped a lotus flower on the earth to determine a place for his yagna, a holy sacrifice. Pushkar is one of the oldest existing cities of India. It lies on the shore of Pushkar Lake. Pushkar has many temples, the most famous among all is the Brahma Temple. With 52 bathing ghats and 400 milky-blue temples, the town often hums with puja. Pushkar is a much loved tourist destination as the town provides great excitement for tourists, with narrow lanes lined with shops selling various accessories and rooftop restaurants. Pushkar is world famous for its cattle fair normally held in the Hindu month Kartika, which is normally in October-November.
