Entering Pushkar via Road is one of the better ways to explore the beauty of this Religious city. Coming from road you can witness the thrill of curvy mountainous roads as well as greenery and an outstanding top view to both the cities Pushkar as well as Ajmer.

After entering Pushkar you can see a-lot of Sadhus as well as Foreigners here. Pushkar has many luxurious and class hotels and spas. Apart from that if you are travelling in budget than you can request to any dharamshala for a stay of a night or two.

For exploring Pushkar the best way according to me is walking but if you want to then you can hire a bike or a scooter on rent easily. So on our way to Brahma Temple we visited a Gurudwara and Rangji Temple which is a beautiful example of South Indian architecture.

En-route to Brahma Temple you can see all the Ghats here at pushkar. There are 52 ghats here at pushkar lake and all of them are named after different gods and cities. Ghats here are always beautiful and scenic at any time of the day but at night during the 'Aarti' time they become more pure and holy. Every year during the Pushkar festival the ghats are decorated very beautifully.

As we entered the ghats i was awestruck by the beautiful view of this holy town, the lake water was shining, birds were chirping and some local musicians were playing the 'Ektara' (a famous Rajasthani music instrument). After hearing some melodies tunes I requested them to let me try my hands on it and they were very humble to accept it, although as obvious i failed but that was fun over all.

After this we reached the historic and religious 'Brahma Temple'. There after offering our prayers, we had a wood fired oven pizza and a falafel, falafel is a Israeli dish which is quite famous here because of Israeli tourists. Even at shops you will find the third language of instruction here is 'Hebrew' which is the native language of Israel.

Now we were on our way to the Savitri Mata Mandir which is situated on the top of a hill, and we were told that the view from there is just outstanding. As we were heading for it on our way we saw the icon of Rajasthani Fauna 'Camel'.
