CityScripts : PUSHKAR

A visit to Ajmer is to be followed by one to Pushkar. They are like this customary sojourns part of a grand Indian pilgrimage circuit. Pushkar is one of this quaint town without any to-do list unless you are travelling for the extravagant annual camel fair. 356 more words


Brahmin on the Lake

“Here,” he said, pushing four flowers into my mehndi hands and clasping them shut, “go down and put these into the lake. Say a prayer whilst you do it.” And with a smile, this young gentleman, who left as suddenly as he came, walked back into the market that smelled of cinnamon incense, falafel and roasted nuts. 334 more words


Where did the devout meet the backpacker?

It was a very cold January morning, when a friend and I, well fed on kachoris, boarded a bus to Pushkar. Between many previously unheard Hindi songs, the North Indian winter wind hitting us in full blast, thanks to open windows, and a brief yet terrible tea stop enroute, the bus reached Pushkar in about 3 hours. 924 more words

Why Westin Pushkar is the next happening destination 

Hello! I almost didn’t write this post. I’m here in Pushkar, attending yet another destination wedding (my 5th destination wedding in 6 months). Super busy as I was, I got the idea for this post after I had posted a picture with my husband on Instagram and tagged the location – Westin Hotel, Pushkar. 598 more words

What I liked about Pushkar - a holy city known for the Camel safari festival and handicrafts & leather goods

A lot of people raved about how great Pushkar is, that they stayed for days / weeks, did nothing but shopped, that we should probably stay 3-4 days, and that they’d highly encourage the visit. 1,078 more words
