Pushkar Location
The sacred and beautiful town of Pushkar lies in a valley some 14 km from Ajmer, Rajasthan. Believed to be one of the oldest Indian towns, Pushkar is grandly nestled between three hillocks and sand dunes. This provides a perfect setting to the world famous camel and religious fair at Pushkar. The Pushkar Camel Fair is amongst the largest cattle fairs in the world. This annual camel festival attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world.

Situated in the Thar Desert of Rajasthan, Pushkar offers an extreme climate. During summer months, the mercury, sometimes, rises as high as 45°C while in winters it plummets to as low as 10°C. Like all other parts of the Thar Desert, Pushkar also does not get much rain during the monsoons. That is the reason why the period between October to March is considered the best to visit Pushkar.

Importance of Pushkar
According to the Hindu mythology, Pushkar is among the five Dhams, held to be the most sacred (other four being Badrinath, Puri, Rameswaram, and Dwarka). According to legends, Lord Brahma (the creator of the world), in search for his abode on earth, performed the utmost spiritual Vedic yagna at Pushkar. Pushkar is the only place to have a Brahma temple. It is said that no pilgrimage is complete without a holy dip in the sacred waters of the Pushkar Lake. Pushkar is called "The Gayatri Dham", the source of the "Gayatri Mantra". Along with the Brahma temple, there are numerous other temples and palaces in Pushkar city.
