Pushkar Fair Rajasthan

Pushkar is a town bordering the Thar Desert, in the northeastern Indian state of Rajasthan. It’s set on Pushkar Lake, a sacred Hindu site with 52 ghats (stone staircases) where pilgrims bathe. Pushkar is famous for its annual fair (Pushkar Camel Fair) featuring a trading fete of cattle, horses and camels. The prime attraction of Pushkar is the Pushkar Lake which is considered sacred like the Mansarovar Lake in Tibet. Pushkar has become a place of Hindu pilgrimage because of this holy lake. Legend has it that this lake was consecrated to Lord Brahma, the creator of the universe when a lotus dropped from his hand into the vale and a lake emerged in that place. The most important temple in Pushkar is the Temple of Lord Brahma, one of the holy trinity of Hinduism. The temple enshrines a life-size idol of Lord Brahma. The Varaha temple is the largest and most ancient temple of Pushkar. Constructed by the 12th-century ruler, King Anaji Chauhan, this temple is dedicated to the third incarnation of Lord Vishnu – a wild boar. Legend has it that Varaha rescued the earth from the depth of the primeval water, where it was dragged down by a demon called Hirnayaksh. It is one of the most visited temples in Pushkar.
