price from ₹199 /person

Pushkar has a magnetism all of its own – it’s quite unlike anywhere else in Rajasthan. It’s a prominent Hindu pilgrimage town and devout Hindus should visit at least once in their lifetime. The town curls around a holy lake, said to have appeared when Brahma dropped a lotus flower. It also has one of the world’s few Brahma temples. With 52 bathing ghats and 400 milky-blue temples, the town often hums with puja (prayers), generating an episodic soundtrack of chanting, drums and gongs, and devotional songs.

The result is a muddle of religious and tourist scenes. The main street is one long bazaar, selling anything to tickle a traveller’s fancy, from hippy-chic tie-dye to didgeridoos.

HosteLaViePushkar is the town's coolest backpacker hostel where you can chill, watch the sunset from our cafe & gang up with others to explore Pushkar.

A city in Rajasthan with its own charm, Pushkar offers a unique chance to every traveller to visit the world’s only temple of the Hindu Lord Brahma. The holy city, filled with a plethora of temples, has a lot more to offer though. The religious and mystic allure of the town is broken by modern cafes all around the little town. And of course, there is the legendary Pushkar Fair, which is held every year in the month of November. During the fair, the town is buzzing with photographers and cultural enthusiasts from all over the world - a spectacle like no other!
