Description

Pushkar tour can make it onto your list for various reasons and one of them being the mesmerizing ‘Pushkar Mela’ which is an annual camel trading fair. The city of Pushkar, Rajasthan is culturally rich and you go face to face with a different view of India altogether.

Pushkar is located to the northwest of Ajmer and it is one of the main attractions for anyone out on a Rajasthan tour.

Pushkar is not only culturally rich but it has huge significance according to Hindi mythology. It is said that while the universe was being created, Lord Bhramha happens to drop lotus flower on the ground and the location upon which the flower dropped was named ‘Pushkar’, meaning Lotus flower itself.

Pushkar proves to be a refreshing weekend getaway trip for anyone living in Delhi, NCR. Pushkar’s distance from Delhi is 418 Km, which makes up for a nice road trip too when visiting Pushkar from Delhi.

There is a ton of activities and things to do in Pushkar. Visiting places, forts and temples are some of the examples of the same. Apart from the Pushkar festival, Pushkar is famous for the view of Pushkar Lake and the serene experience of the Brahma temple, which is only one of its kind in the whole world.

The best time to visit Pushkar is between the months of November to March when the weather favors the travelers and there is a cool breeze in the air. But one can visit Pushkar all year long but keep in mind about the dates for Puskar Festival, which nobody should miss on their tour itinerary.

The reasons you need to go on the Pushkar tour in 2019 are far more than many but if you still got doubts then let us clear them up while you are on a trip to Pushkar with Justwravel.
