According to legend, Pushkar came into being when Lord Brahma, the creator, dropped a lotus flower in the desert and it turned into a lake. That lake has become one of India’s most sacred pilgrimage sites, and the city has grown around it, adding bathing ghats and hundreds of temples to its banks and the buzz of pujas to the air. As well as being a Hindu pilgrimage town, Pushkar is also famous for its annual camel market. In October/November every year, buyers, sellers and camels galore occupy the sand dunes just outside of the city to do business. Despite all the modernisation, Pushkar has managed to return an air of mysticism, giving it a different atmosphere to many of the other cities of Rajasthan, and making it a delight to explore.
