After breakfast, proceed on Pushkar tour, accompanied by a local English-speaking guide. Visit the famous Brahma Temple - one of the few temples in the world dedicated to Lord Brahma. The marble steps lead to the temple where there is a silver turtle raised on the ground facing the sanctum- sanctorum. The marble floor around the turtle and the walls are studded with hundreds of silver coins. The images of the peacock, the vehicle of Lord Brahma, adorn the walls of the temple. A ‘hans’ (goose, considered special by Brahma) which is crowned with a red arrow extends over the entrance door of the temple. Visit the famous Pushkar Lake, surrounded by more than 400 temples and 50 ghats (steps with the wide platforms at the lake). According to legend, Brahma performed a ‘yajna’ (sacrifice) in the Pushkar Valley and the lotus fell from his hands. Pushkar Lake, it is said miraculously appeared at this place. A dip in the lake (especially on Kartika Purnima, full moon day of the month of Kartika according to the Hindu calendar) is considered to be a good way to wash away all sins and be led to salvation. Around this time (October and November), Pushkar Fair, a camel & cattle fair, is organized. Villagers come to buy and sell. Many competitions are organized among the villagers, which makes it a very interesting show.
Later, visit local markets where you can buy tinted bracelets, beads, embroidered clothing, shoes, a range of leather products and colorful wooden toys. Later return to hotel to spend evening in leisure and have overnight stay.
