Things to Do
where TO STAY

Located in the Ajmer District of Rajasthan, 83 miles southwest of the capital city of Jaipur, the quaint little town of Pushkar is a sacred pilgrimage site for both Hindus and Sikhs.

Tens of thousands of pilgrims throng to its sacred temples to pray and take holy baths on the Ghat (embankments) on the banks of Lake Pushkar.

One of the oldest cities in India (and also the venue for the iconic Pushkar Camel Fair (the largest livestock fair-cum-festival in the country), Pushkar is famous for its sacred Pushkar Sarovar Lake which is revered in the Hindu tradition as one of the cherished creations of Lord Brahma. 

Attendance at the Brahma Temple and a dip in the lake at the Brahma Ghat are believed to cure your soul and cleanse your sins.

The Savitri Temple, Varaha Temple, Gayatri Mata Temple and Rangji Temple are other important religious sites of the Hindu faith. The stunningly beautiful white-marbled Gurudwara Sahib Pushkar and the adopted home of the 10th Sikh Guru (now the Guru Gobind Ghat) are revered by the Sikhs.

However, for international and many Indian tourists, the Pushkar Camel Fair (Pushkar Mela/Kartik Mela)—a swashbuckling colorful melee of livestock trade, cultural festivity, rapturous folk music and dances, traditional games, snake charming, puppet shows and animal parades— is the top draw of Pushkar.

Held in the month of Kartik as per the Hindu lunar calendar, the 8-day Pushkar Mela attracts tens of thousands of tourists.

Frequently Asked Questions

If your visit coincides with the Pushkar Mela (festival) which will be held in November this year, you might consider staying a couple of days more to immerse yourself completely in the cultural spectacles.

WINTER (NOVEMBER-OCTOBER) is the best time of the year to visit all of Rajasthan, including Pushkar.

Temperatures range from 58 °F to 80 °F during the daytime and the weather is ideal for outdoor activities, desert safaris and cultural excursions.

Please bear in mind that the region is a dry arid desert terrain, so summers can get hot and the mercury rises above 100 °F.

The Pushkar Mela (Festival) is when the region offers an exciting gala of festivity, celebration and cultural immersion. The 8-day-long festival is held in the Hindu lunar month of Karthik.

This year it will coincide with 20-28 November on the Gregorian calendar.

In the Hindu faith, there are 33 million gods and goddesses but three deities, Lord Brahma (the creator), Vishnu (the preserver) and Shiva (the destroyer) are considered the gods of gods.

While Vishnu and Shiva are widely worshipped in thousands of temples across India, there are not many temples for Lord Brahma (the Creator).

Legend has it that Lord Brahma was infatuated with Shatarupa, a beautiful female deity. This indecency did not sit well with Lord Shiva who put a curse on him that ensured that Brahma won’t be worshipped anywhere.

According to another legend, Lord Brahma and Lord Vishnu went to war with each other and to settle the matter Lord Shiva sent both of them on a task to find the end of pillar of light he had created.

This task was meant to settle the debate between the two and establish who the superior god is. Both came back unsuccessful thousands of years later, but Lord Brahma lied about having successfully accomplished the feat. This anger Shiva who placed a curse on him.

Camel Fair 


Camel Fair Extravaganza: Immerse in Pushkar's Vibrant Spectacle

Ostensibly the PUSHKAR MELA (fair) is an annual trade and selling of camels, horses and other livestock. But there is more to it than just livestock.

The Pushkar Camel Fair is a veritable cultural phenomenon featuring folk dances, music events, puppet shows, snake charming, animal races and parades, handicrafts, textiles and relentless revelry and celebrations.

The event is an exciting celebration of the region’s culture that you cannot miss out on.


Desert Chic: Luxurious Camp Stay amidst the Dunes

Pushkar is a lake town. The town derives its life and nourishment from the serene Pushkar Sarovar Lake, which is believed to have been created by LORD BRAHMA. However, as you venture out into the outskirts, the infinite Thar Desert stretches on and on for hundreds of miles.

A luxurious stay at a cozy dune camp is one immersion that you have to treat yourself. The desert in winter is an enchanting place to visit. 


Divine Encounters: Exploring the Brahma Temple

Also known as the Jagatpita Brahma Mandir, this very sacred temple located close to the shores of the Pushkar Lake is dedicated to the creator-god BRAHMA and is perhaps the most important of the few Brahma temples in all of India.

The sanctum holds the image of the four-headed Brahma and his consort GAYATRI DEVI. A visit to this 14-th century temple with a distinct red pinnacle (Shikhara) and a bird motif is an absolute must in Pushkar.


Sacred Serenade: Evening Aarti Ceremony at Pushkar Lake

Like the Ganga Aarti ritual which is carried out at sunset on the Ghat embankments of the holy river in Varanasi, an Aarti ceremony to honor the holy lake is carried out at the Varah Ghat of Pushkar Lake which is attended by thousands of devotees and visits every evening.

Priests chant incantations from the holy scripture. Rose petals are released into the water. Incense sticks are burnt and bells are rung to create a serenading spiritual experience that is worth watching.

Heritage Tales


Heritage Tales: Private Stroll through Pushkar's Old Town

As an ancient continuously inhabited town, Pushkar’s landscape is dotted with a treasure trove of heritage temples, Gurudwaras and landmarks. A heritage walk or a private stroll through the old town is an immersive cultural experience.

On the walk, you will witness the Brahma Temple, the Varaha Temple, Savitri Temple, Rangji Temple and Gurudwara Sahib Pushkar.

Lakefront Indulgence


Lakefront Indulgence: Spa Retreat with a View

Surrounded by the Aravalli range of mountains, the Pushkar region nestled on the side of the lake is a soothing oasis of calm, beauty and historical charm.

To make the most out of your Pushkar experience, we recommend a serene stay at one of the lakeside resorts, offering rejuvenating treatments, yoga classes and breathtaking views of Pushkar Lake.

Elevated Indulgence


Elevated Indulgence: Sunset Soiree on an Exclusive Terrace

The GHATS (embankments) of the Pushkar Lake are a beautiful sight to enjoy a sunset but we also recommend our exclusive sunset soiree on a terrace at a heritage building overlooking the lake and the lush green Aravalli hills.

People-watching from that vantage point and witnessing religious activity come to a peaceful end for the day from your perch —with a refreshing drink in the backdrop of the golden twilight sun— is such a calming experience.
