    Walk trough the streets

    by schlumpf Written Jan 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Walk trough the streets of Pushkar is my favourite activity...In this way you can know people, talk to them and share experiences and culture...A lot of europeans lives in Pushkar since the ‘70s, indeed Pushkar is consider a multi etnic city...
    The easiest way to get to know this city is walk trough his “center”, a.k.a. the main street that brings youto the Gaths. Here is fullfilled of small shops, bars, restaurants (unconventional restaurant, do not worry!!), people standing and so on..
    Pushkar is the city I have visited with less cow on the way...despite this, is the city with more monkeys....
    Isn’t so durty as Delhi or Varanasi are, isn’t so looking poor as the other are...definitely a nice place where to chill.

    Pushkar Lake Ghats/Holy Lake

    by RAJASTHANBYCAR Written Sep 30, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    There are also lots of fauna by the lake, the local cows, monkeys and pigeons have an easy life here. I couldn’t resist taking this shot where a cheeky raven is bulling a cow.

    The only thing I liked about Pushkar was the 'Spiritual Walking Tour' of the town. It is a small little place and the last time I visited it as a tourist, I actually didn't see anything other than the Bramha Temple & certain Ghaats which was disappointing after a long journey from Udaipur.

    Now this time, instead of taking a sightseeing tour, I took a Spiritual walking tour from Vedic Walks. An amazing experience for me to rejoice all my life. Couldn't have asked for more. I was shocked to see that they took me to places which even locals aren't aware about or perhaps don't care for them.

    Next time you are in Pushkar, do nothing else but take this walk & you are sorted. vedicwalks.com/#!pushkar-wal...

    Stay good..Kath!
