One of the most magnetic cities of all time, Pushkar, today, is known worldwide for its spectacular Camel Fair. In the Hindu month of Kartika (October/November), this one of the oldest cities of India wraps itself with colour, zeal and fervour.
Nestled among the holy Pushkar Lake, this small town bordering on the Thar Desert offers enchantingly mystic and relaxed ambience. With 400 milky-blue temples, 52 bathing ghats, and one of the very few temples Brahma temples, the town has a lot to offer in terms of pilgrimage and heritage tourism. Interestingly, one can spot a large number of Israeli tourists at any given time of the year. If you can ignore the commercialization and the pell-mell of the touristy and religious insistence, the town portrays a perfect interplay of history and mythology.
