Contact DetailsHome

Pushkar is located in the heart of Rajasthan. Its a pilgrim centre for domestic and European travellers. It has more than 500 temples including the only one temple in India dedicated to Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe.

Pushkar is so well mentioned in Indian mythology, that after visiting all the Hindu pilgrim towns and temples (the four Dhams), if Pushkar is not visited for pooja then salvation is not achieved!

According to the Hindu calendar, 'Pushkar Fair' commences on Navami (ninth moon) to Purnima during the month of Kartika, which can be in the month of October or November.

Here, one of the biggest cattle fairs is held for trading purposes. Countless people in colourful attire gather and take a dip in the holy lake and pray to the deities. The whole town comes alive with vibrant folk music and dances, magic shows, horse and camel races and various other traditional entertainment and competitions.

Pushkar, with a dozen of local fairs and festivals lasting for 10 to 15 days, is round-the-year destination. It is mellowed by the great expanse of the lake water and perfumes of Jasmine and rose flowers. More than 5000 visitors from all over the world visit Pushkar every day.
