Pushkar holidays

Pushkar is located only 11 kilometres from the bustling Rajasthani town of Ajmer, but separated from it by Nag Pahar, the Snake Mountain. The town clings to the side of the small Pushkar Lake, believed by Hindus to have been created by Lord Brahma, making Pushkar an important pilgrimage centre. Today there are as many as 400 temples and the lake is circled by 52 ghats built over the years by several kings and nobles. Pushkar is perhaps best known for its incredible Camel Fair, which takes place each November – during these few days the town is overflowing with tribal people from all over Rajasthan, as well as pilgrims, traders, and tourists.
