Pushkar is a small place, situated 11 km from Ajmer, in the state of Rajasthan. It is a holy place mostly visited for the sacred Pushkar Lake, the Brahma temple. Thus, though Pushkar is primarily a pilgrimage spot but is a major attraction for hippie souls to come and relax.
Best time to Visit :
While the weather and festivities in Pushkar stay alive all year long, the best time to visit the holy town is between November and March.
Distance from Jaipur to Pushkar :

How to Reach?
- OLA outstation or private Taxi(Good if 2-4 people are travelling together)
- via Bus
We left for Pushkar on Saturday early morning via OLA outstation cab services. It was charged around 4000/-
* I might prefer travelling via bus the next time as via OLA, we need to pay toll-taxes, which isn't included in the cab tariff and eventually the rates tend to gets high.
