Pushkar lake is at a distance of 10-15km from Ajmer and takes about 30min to reach so we decided to cover this places as well. Personally i loved the vibes of this place. It feels good to sit on the stairs of pushkar lake and experience peace and calmness. A little pooja was also performed by a priest for us on pushkar lake. We offered our respect to the holy water of pushkar lake. You should definitely include this in your itinerary of ajmer/Pushkar.Places to eat
Watch my world famous holi of pushkar
3rd day in the morning I made a big mistake, so there in pushkar when you take bhang (which they call special lassi on bill), they ask you which level; as there are 5 levels of bhang, and with sweet the intensity of that increases even more. In morning around 10 am I had the 5th and highest level possible. For 1 hour I was fine but then, oh then, things got ugly. My head was spinning as if veins and eyes will pop out. Bhang wasn’t getting over, so they gave me coconut, nothing worked, then curd after 30 mins, again nothing worked. I thought death is near or something, then I had lemon water and puked after 30 mins. That ahemdabad friend helped a lot. In the night I had bus to catch for delhi, so I called my friend that whether I should board bus in this condition or not, she said wait till night. So, I waited and boarded the bus after I felt a bit fine. After reaching home the next day I didn’t regret even a single thing happened in those 3 days, because everything just made it more flawed and perfect. That day I took a risk and I survived, I was lucky that I survived, I was blessed that I am still surviving with all the planned risks I take and even the unplanned ones. You know what, if you won’t take risk, then you won’t touch new boundaries and set no limit to who you are. Because you can never know yourself completely as with situations you understand these things.
What to see in Pushkar:Pushkar is famous for the Brahma temple and has a few other temples too. Lord Brahma in Hindu mythology is the god that created the world. Pushkar Lake or Pushkar Sarovar is said to be created by him. It is a considered as a sacred lake and evening aarti happens everyday. The sides of the Lake are now converted in ghats, where people perform puja’s, take a dip in the holy water (that looked murky and a little dirty). There are around 52 ghats and about dozens of temples mostly small ones. There hundreds of egrets swimming in the lake mostly in pairs and look so beautiful. They keep navigating through out the day in the lake and some times swam across to a different sides of the lake, only adding to the beauty of this place. At the ghats, the local people feed grains to pigeons and it is a surreal experience, when they fly off over your head.
