Even Pushkar’s history is “beautiful”. According to a legend, the lake at Pushkar originated after a lotus flower inadvertently fell from the hand of god Brahma, the God of creation in the Hindu mythology (‘push’ means flower and ‘kar’ means hand). One more legend is associated with god Brahma. When Brahma wanted to hold a ceremony at this new lake, his consort Saraswati was absent, who by the rules of the rituals should have been present Unceremoniously, Brahma married the shepherdess Gayatri. When his wife arrived, there was a violent fight. Saraswati cursed and condemned Brahma to have no more following in the future and to be worshipped by the believers only in Pushkar. Therefore, Pushkar houses the one and only temple of god Brahma in whole India. Every Hindu makes a pilgrimage to Pushkar at least once during their life, to pray at one of the many Ghats (stairways to the lake) where they carry out a ritual bath in the sacred Pushkar Lake.
Pushkar Mela is not only a religious event and spiritual highlight, but during the seven-day festival, the small place changes into a turbulent, popular fair. Thousands of peasants flock to Pushkar with their camels, horses and cattle, and travelers from around the world come to experience the beauty and excitement of the event and town. First the men arrive, and strike their camps in the dunes around the lake. Three days before the full moon the women, draped into their showy clothes, arrive and start singing and dancing in small groups. Their arms are draped with silver, gold and ivory. Their Saris shine in the most colorful, inebriating shades of color.
The “stars” of the animals at the festival are the camels. In addition, you will find at the camel bazaar colorful leather harnesses decorated with brass buttons, small mirrors, and more. At the camel bazaar there are also games of chance, food stands, jugglers, music groups, dance groups and drama groups. For the pilgrims from their remote desert villages, Pushkar fair is a welcome change from their everyday life. Visitors will see many Sadhus (ascetics in search of spiritual enlightenment)who stand at the temples and Ghats.
