Savitri & Gayatri - the two hills just outside the city - seem so close, so we decided we'll try & climb one for the great view from the Holy temple. But walking through the small streets, entering the desert & climbing the rocky hills isn't really as easy as one would think... And there was this kid who gave us the wrong direction - on purpose! :)
Nevertheless, we managed to see the temple from the bottom of the hill & we had so much fun on the way there. But we also got tired, so we spent the rest of the time in the Eye, eating, playing backgammon & chatting...
Old Pushkar, Rajasthan.
Leaving by the north-east on the by-pass about 7 kms from Pushkar is old Pushkar. Nothing really much to see except a Hindu temple next to the lake and ghats. The lake is almost completely dry, leaving just the bathing pools in front of the ghats. In season though, the area is well known for the rose-farming.
buildings and motiffs
someof the buildings in the area have walls painted with themes from the epics.I saw a few modern themes too
