The word 'Pushkar' means lotus flower, which is said to be the seat of Brahma, one of the Hindu holy trinity worshipped as the creator of this world. Over the years, Pushkar has become one of the most sought after travel destinations for solo travellers.
After a brief research about the place, I decided to take this trip during the Makar Sankranti festival. I took an overnight bus to Ajmer, which dropped me off the highway. I took an auto to the nearest bus stop and caught a state transport bus to the Land of Brahma. The bus ride from Ajmer to Pushkar is hardly 30 minutes and the view along the route is scenic enough (if you manage to find the perfect seat).
