Plush Fun in Pushkar

by Suresh Nanda The Ananta Udaipur

A desert with a huge lake! This combination not only sounds magical but at a certain level, impossible too. But, the amazing fact is, that this combination definitely exists. This exists in Pushkar, a town situated on the margins of the Thar Desert, in Rajasthan. Like every city, it has its own characteristics. With the call of this town’s name, one generally relates to colours. It is an extremely colourful place to be. This is a place with fun, frolic, colour, vast exploration and devotion.

There are three major highlights of Pushkar. One is the Pushkar Lake. This one lake is so huge that it consists of at least 50 ghats. These ghats account for some highly religious and spiritual aspects. This huge lake in a desert town, somehow manages to inculcate the most peaceful experiences ever. One may see many religious acts being carried out at several ghats of the Pushkar Lake. Pushkar is a very holy place for the Hindu and Sikh pilgrims. They say that a dip in the Pushkar Lake takes away sins of that person for the next 100 years to come! The other famous thing about Pushkar is surely related to devotion, that is, the temples. The town is actually known for just ghats and the temples and the Gurudwaras. It resides one of the most unique temples of India, dedicated to a Lord, to be known as the creator of the universe; Lord Brahma, to whom one would hardly see a temple dedicated to. There is no temple in North India at least, dedicated to Lord Brahma. Devotees come in huge numbers to seek blessings and consider themselves, lucky to have breathed in an environment so pure and serene. The other famous temples in Pushkar are The Varaha Temple, The Savitri Temple and many more.

To experience such memorable moments, accommodation in Pushkar is the easiest thing to avail in the town, in order to have a fantastic holiday. The hospitality, services and the rooms are of top most priority.

The third major highlight of Pushkar is the famous Pushkar Mela. It takes place every year during the month of October or November (keeping in mind the Kartik Poornima) for 7 days. It is basically a camel and cattle trading event where they are decorated in the prettiest and the most colourful manner. The mela is not limited to just the trade. It also consists of camel rides, folk dances and many more festivities.

Hotels in Pushkar make sure they too contribute to one’s stay in the town in the most fantastic and memorable way, by assuring all sorts of comfort and amenities.
