Things to do
Spiritual Temple Walk -Pushkar's mysticism has much to do with its lake temples and the air of spirituality surrounding it, but more with the strong religious pulse that beats through this templetown. Stroll through the crowded lanes of Pushkar, hike the holy hills beyond and visit its renowned temples.
Gypsy Visit and Folk Music- Much like gypsies the world over, Rajasthani gypsies are renowned for their music and dancing prowess as well as unique nomadic lifestyle. These musically gifted artisans toured kingdoms for the longest time, entertaining royals, performing dances and singing ballads.
Heritage and Lake Walk-Hinduism's most revered ghats, a renowned Brahma temple, and famed camel festival, the dusty town of Pushkar is so much more than the average pilgrimage centre it's often made out to be. Drive through Pushkar valley to the serene lake town filled with colourful markets of handicrafts, leather, and jewellery.
Ajmer Dargah-Shiva Temple Visit -Drive over to the gates of Ajmer Sharif, a mere 15 kilometres away from Pushkar, after breakfast. Meet our local expert at the entrance who will walk you through to the dargah (shrine). Renowned for numerous recorded miracles, this Shrine is built around the maqbara (grave) of revered Sufi Saint Moinuddin Chisti.
