    the gaths

    The main attraction of Pushkar is his holy Lake, fullfilled of Gaths and people praying. Is a very beautifull place to visit, but keep in mind to bring respect!
    As you see from the picture, if you get to the other side of the Gaths, yo uwill have a such coloured view of the gaths...pretty amazing!

    The pious Pushkar Lake, believed to have been created by the falling of lotus from the hand of Lord Brahma. It is considered to be as old as the creation. The lake is considered as one of the most sacred spots, and believed that one dip in the waters of lake on Kartika Poornima is equivalent to performing yagnas for several hundred years.

    The charming lake amidst the hills has fifty-two bathing ghats, built around lake. The water around each ghat is supposed to have special powers. The Naga Kund is belived to give fertility, Roop Tirth gives beauty and charm, Kapil Vyapi Kund water helps in curing leprosy and a dip in the Mrikand Muni Kund grants the boon of wisdom.
