Pushkar is a small town in Rajasthan, 420 km from Delhi. Despite its size, it is one of the most important pilgrimage places for Hindus. The city sits around a holy lake, which according to tradition, appeared when Brahma dropped a lotus flower.
There are 52 ghats where pilgrims perform rituals and prayers. Among them, you’ll find Main Gau Ghat, where Mahatma Gandhi ashes’s were immersed. Pushkar is also home to one of the very few temples in the world dedicated to Lord Brahma.
I visited Pushkar during the first weekend of March, and the town was relatively quiet. It should be completely different during the Camel Fair, which takes place every year around October or November.
