Pushkar Lake

One of the major religious destinations in Rajasthan, Pushkar is also a hippie paradise. The town surrounds the sacred Pushkar Lake, a Hindu pilgrimage site with more than 52 ghats to bathe and make religious offerings. Although the town boasts many temples, the most prominent is Jagatpita Brahma Mandir, dedicated to Lord Brahma. Pushkar is also famous for its cattle fair, popularly known as Pushkar Camel Fair or Pushkar ka Mela, held in November every year. If you are not a religious traveller, then you must visit the laid-back town to slow down your fast and hectic life even if for a few days. The narrow lanes of Pushkar are full of inexpensive small cafes and restaurants mostly themed around spirituality, offering a vibrant yet peaceful ambience to chill and relax. A perfect place to rejuvenate, Pushkar is one of the best and cheapest tourist places in India.
