Pushkar / Ajmer

Overview of Pushkar / Ajmer

Pushkar is a town in the Ajmer district in the Indian state of Rajasthan. It is situated 14 km (8.7 mi) northwest of Ajmer at an average elevation of 510 m (1,670 ft) and is one of the five sacred dhams (pilgrimage site) for devout Hindus.

Pushkar has the only temple in India dedicated to Lord Brahma, creator of the three worlds. According to a legend, as Lord Brahma was searching for a suitable place to perform a yagnya, the lotus fell of his hands and the place where it fell sprung out water. Since then the lake of Pushkar was formed. The lake still stands with 52 bathing Ghat on its banks. People throng to these ghat to take a dip in the holy lake and wash away all their sins, as is the popular belief here. It was on the full moon day in the month of Kartik that the lake was formed. This religious reason has given the world an opportunity to be a part of one of the most spectacular fairs of the world.
