Full description
Your guide will pick you up from your hotel and accompany you on the 2-hour drive in a private air conditioned vehicle to Pushkar, one of the oldest cities in India. Located northwest of Ajmer city, the holy city of Pushkar is a favored destination for tourists and devotees. Pushkar is situated at the bank of a lake which, according to lore, was created after Lord Brahma (The Creator) dropped a lotus on the ground. Your first stop is the ancient Brahma Temple. It is the only temple across the world dedicated to Lord Brahma, so it is a very special place for Hindu devotees. Your guide will lead you towards a pious Brahma image, with four hands and four faces each oriented in a different direction. At noon you will have lunch at a local Indian restaurant. Next, you arrive at Pushkar Lake. Your guide tells you how it serves as a bathing spot during Karthik Poornima, where devotees dive in the lake during the full-moon to wash away their sins. In the evening you can see traditional Aarti, part of the ceremonies on the bank of Pushkar Lake. Your guide will explain how it has been performed and its religious significance. At the end of tour you will be dropped off back at your hotel.
