HolidayIQ reviewer Mohd Asif shares, "One has to attend Pushkar festival if you are interested in rural life and fun. You will be able to see a lot of camels and Marwari horses along with local games like kabaddi, kho kho, camel and horse racing and dance. Apart from that balloon riding and a cultural performance by the renowned artists, there is much to explore and it's worth visiting there."

HolidayIQ reviewer Ajeet Singhaniya says, "Pushkar lake is just awesome. The whole city looks beautiful due to the lake. One thing about Pushkar that's special is, 'Pushkar Fair' which is world's largest camel festival-fair. From camel selling, buying to matka podi games, it has everything. On full moon night, the city looks stunning, as celebration takes place with start of Pushkar Fair."

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rohith Sivashankar adds, “Pushkar town is around half an hour drive from Ajmer and is a known for the famous Brahma temple which one of the very few temples dedicated to Lord Brahma, one of the holy trinity of Hinduism. The lake in the centre of the town has many ghats much like Varanasi and is nearby the temple. There are 2 temples named Savitri Mata Mandir and Gayatri mandir both of whom are considered to be the wives of Brahma. One can go for camel rides in the nearby deserts at a cost of 400 rs per head. Due to a large number of foreigners visiting the place there are a lot of good hotels and restaurants around. Overall a good getaway place.”
