Pushkar Fair

Recently one of my friends reported me this Pushkar passport scam being done by thugs disguised as Sadhus (priests) .It is an old saying that money is the root of all evils and this scam falls on the same line. Few thugs disguised as priests are looting foreign tourist in the name of faith. The modus operandi used by these swindlers is same.

Here I am posting Pushkar Camel Fair Dates for your reference, hope this will be useful.

Pushkar Lake draws tourists at fair

Pushkar (Ajmer): The swollen Pushkar Lake and the recent visit of the Obamas seems to have worked for the Pushkar Fair that is witnessing a surge in the tourist numbers this season.

Hotel owners believe the brimming lake is one of main reasons for drawing tourists to the holy city. "Last year, there was a slump in the tourist arrivals, but this time the room rates have almost doubled with enquiries still pouring in," said Deepak Sharma, a hotel owner.

Pushkar

As per Hindu Mythology Brahma dropped a lotus flower on the earth once and Pushkar floated to the surface. This pond-sized Hindu pilgrimage town is an exquisite desert place, with one of the world’s few Brahma temples. a line of holy ghats front a magically alluring lake, where hundreds of milky-coloured temples and weather-touched domes rest below a fluctuating, pale grey sky.rut breakers are way enchanted by this much feted low-rent paradise.
