The sister city of Ajmer, Pushkar is just 11 Km away from the city. The road to
Pushkar passes through the Nag Pahar or the Snake Mountain. Pushkar is an ancient city.
The city is considered by Hindus to be one of
the most sacred places in India and
has, perhaps, the only existing
temple in Asia, dedicated to Lord
Brahma. Life in the city is very much
related to the Pushkar Lake. Mythology says that this ancient lake was formed when a lotus
flower fell in the valley from the hands Brahma.
The famous Pushkar fair is held every year on the Kartik purnima day. This fair is famous as a
Bazaar for the animals particularly the Camels. But the folk dancers and the folk musicians add
traditional colour in the fair, which gives a new leash of life to the town.
