Pushkar is a holy city & also one of the oldest cities in India. Pushkar has a magnetism all of its own – it’s quite unlike anywhere else in Rajasthan. Brahma is one-third of the holy trinity in Hindu religion, and the city of Pushkar is home to the only temple dedicated to Lord Brahma in the whole world. According to legends, Lord Brahma, believed to be the creator of the Universe dropped a lotus to the ground leading to the immediate creation of a lake. He then decided to name the place after the flower, and thus the name, Pushkar. Hindus consider a journey to Pushkar to be the ultimate pilgrimage that must be undertaken to attain salvation. Located to the northwest of Ajmer, the tranquil city of Pushkar is a favoured destination for thousands of tourists and devotees flocking to Rajasthan. Situated at a height of 510 metres, Pushkar is surrounded by hillocks on three sides. Along with an interesting mythological history, a legacy of timeless architectural heritage makes Pushkar a fascinating city. It is known best for its annual camel fair.
