Rajasthan is a state that attracts millions of tourists each year who are keen to witness the varied diversity that this desert land has to offer. The largest Indian state, although essentially a desert, also has its very own hill station, Mount Abu. So whether you prefer the rustic environment of the desert or the peaceful beauty of the hill stations, you can have it all in Rajasthan. Some of the important cities and towns that must feature on your itinerary while planning a trip to Rajasthan are Jaipur, Udaipur, Jaisalmer, Ajmer and of course Pushkar. While each place has its own specialty to enthrall the visitor, it is Pushkar that will give you a true peek into the spiritual and not just the religious side of the Indians. This small town located in the ‘land of kings’ has much to offer in terms of history, geographical beauty, architectural knowledge and spirituality. So when you are visiting Rajasthan, make sure that your Pushkar hotel booking has been confirmed much in advance.
Pushkar hotel booking in advance will ensure that you do not face any disappointment at the last minute. The winter months are the best time to visit Pushkar as most of the famous fairs and festivals are held in winters. This is a time when most of the visitors flock to this town from not only across India but also from other countries. Pushkar has the holy rivers flowing through it and many Hindus visit this place specifically to take a dip in the rivers as it is believed that it will wash away their sins. When you have a Pushkar hotel booking during the festive time, you can stay in the city for sometime and see the spectacular sight of many holy men accumulating in this small place to carry out many spiritual and religious ceremonies.
Yet another reason to get your Pushkar hotel booking confirmed during this time is to witness the traditional cattle and camel fair that has achieved immense popularity in India. Here, the cattle and camel are not just traded by the dealers, but they are also entered various competitive events that provide a lot of excitement and fun, not only to the participants but the onlookers as well. While you are caught up in the celebrations make sure that you get a taste of authentic Rajasthani cuisine that is sure to pamper your taste buds. A cultural evening of folk songs and dance is also a regular feature of these festivals and it is sure to create some fond memories for you to carry back from your trip.
Pushkar is also a place dotted with many temples, each having a different mythological story attached to it. One of the most famous is the temple dedicated to Lord Brahma, which is the only such temple in the entire Indian subcontinent. So get your Pushkar hotel booking done and be ready to have a vacation of your lifetime that will make you want to come back each year.
