Pushkar, Rajasthan, India             Click here for photos of the Pushkar Camel Fair 2006


A Hindu pilgrimage centre, Pushkar's temples are all of modern construction; the earlier buildings were destroyed by the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb (reigned 1658-1707). The principal temple and Pushkar Lake are dedicated to the god Brahma. Bathing ghats (stairways descending to the water) surround the lake, to which great sanctity is attached, and a religious fair there is attended annually by thousands of pilgrims. Pushkar is also famous for its annual camel fair. [Adapted from Encyclopedia Britannica]
