A Visit to Pushkar - Holy Place

Meaning of this word Pushkar is "Blue Lotus". As there is a lake Known as "Pushkar Sarovar" so maybe this meaning came from that lake as there might be lotus flowers in this lake. But for now i didn't found any lotus.

       There are many ghats which have different names. Brahma ghat is one of them. You can feed pigeons and fish at this lake. If you believe in god or if you are spiritual then you can ask "pandit to pray for you". You can plunge in this lake. But keep this place clean too.
