Pushkar, Rajasthan


Pushkar PalaceA town painted white, built around a lake of sparkling blue, surrounded by acres and acres of red roses, tucked in by hills on three sides and golden dunes of sand on the fourth. With a history as magical as its location, no wonder the tiny town of Pushkar is a significant destination within the province of Rajasthan. Considered Brahma's only abode on earth it is the sencond holiest city in India, ranked after Varanasi. But it's not just a temple town, there's much to explore here in this maze of whitewashed ghats, temples, ashrams and dharamshalas encircling the lake. Visit the ghats to offer prayers along with rose petals and coconuts to appease the deities, take a dip in the holy Pushkar Lake, for the more adventerous at heart try some bhang lassi, attend the Pushkar Cattle Fair, do yoga at sunrise or sunset, take an exotic Camel ride, treat yourself to a massage with rose-scented oils, listen to some live music as you nurse a steaming hot cuppa at one of its many cafes, stroll through the bazaar full of interesting bric-a-brac and what ever else you do, do not miss out on eating the local delicacies.


Legend/Myths
According to the epics, Pushkar was created when a lotus fell from the hands of Lord Brahma and landed on this site. Brahma resolved to perform a yagna here but since his wife Savitri was not with him he married a local damsel called Gayatri and commenced his prayers, when Savitri arrived on the scene and saw Gayatri she cursed Brahma that he would not be worshipped anywhere outside of Pushkar ever.
