After breakfast, drive to Pushkar (2 ½ hrs). On arrival in Pushkar, check-in at your hotel.
Pushkar: On the edge of the desert lies the tiny tranquil town of Pushkar along the bank of the picturesque Pushkar Lake. This important Hindu pilgrimage has the only temple of Lord Brahma ('The Creator' in the Hindu Trinity of Gods) in the country and one of the few in the world. Pushkar became famous due to its Camel Fair, the largest in India. November – the month of Kartik brings Pushkar alive, as it is then that cattle traders from all over Rajasthan and neighboring states converge here to buy and sell camels, horses, donkeys, bulls, etc.
Pushkar boasts temples, though few are as ancient as you might expect at such an important pilgrimage site, since many were destroyed by Aurangzeb, a Mogul ruler and subsequently rebuilt. The most famous is the Brahma Temple, said to be the only temple in the world dedicated to this deity. It stands on a high plinth with the Marble steps leading up to it. A silver turtle is set on the floor facing the Sanctum-Sanctorum or Girbha-griha. Around the turtle the Marble floor is inset with hundreds of silver coins. Coins engraved with donors names are also embedded in the walls. Peacocks adorn the temple walls as they are supposed to be the vehicle of Lord Brahma's consort Saraswati. A small image of the milkmaid Gayatri, flanks the four-faced image of Lord Brahma and is called Chaumurti The sanctuary has silver doors inside a carved marble gateway.
