  • The sacred Lake of Puskar is fascinating more for what it represents than for what you see. It is believed that the Lake is the miracle product of a Lotus fell from the hands of Brahma, the Creator God, and that was a drop of Amrit, the nectar of the gods, to make further sacred waters. The most devout claim that, on the occasion of the full moon of the month of Kartika, all 330 million gods Indians are simultaneously present in Pushkar, because this is the location of one of the rarest temples across India to the Creator God of the Hindu trimurti.
