Pushkar, the city often referred to as the ‘rose garden of Rajasthan’ is a city of culture and intellect. Nothing can describe this iconic city better than a sought-after destination that provides the essence of Pushkar roses, the charm of culturally vibrant atmosphere and the dynamic festivities make it one hot cultural spot. The west wind of Pushkar gives an easygoing vibe of Westwood lifestyle in the hot sandstone town. The home of the only temple dedicated to Lord Brahma in the world, it is one of the ultimate pilgrimages for Hindus to attain divine spiritual bliss. A place of holy spirit for Hindus, ample ghats are flooded with devotees, closing eyes in the serenity of chants coming from temples around. A soothing and calm place with the glitter of spirituality makes Pushkar a must visit.
Pushkar is one of the oldest cities of India and is one of the five sacred dhams for devout Hindus. It has one of the very few existing devoted temples to Lord Brahma. Pushkar is also famous for its annual Pushkar Camel Fair, held in the month of November. This is one of very few places in Rajasthan you would find which isn't famous because of a fort. This holy city attracts tourists from far and wide for its many temples. Even though Pushkar is a deeply religious destination, it has become a hipster's paradise in the last few years. A number of cafes with a relaxed and chilled out vibe serve delicious, authentic vegetarian Indian food, and you can sit and observe the life in small-town rural India, and appreciate Hindu religious traditions. However, one has to be a little sensitive towards the its religious and spiritual significance, respect local norms and keep from consuming meat products or liquor in and a little around Pushkar.

- Pushkar is infamous for its scams. Best to stay conservatively dressed. Be careful not to get duped by people who claim to be priests.
Pushkar famous for the Bharma temple the only one in the whole world. You would find hippies in pushkar. A small desert. Try camel safari if you visit because that's the main attraction One can also visit Ajmer Dargha sharif
