The lake is surrounded by numerous ghats. The best views are at early morning, or vsit the deep daan at evening.

Its a must visit in Pushkar. With around 50+ gates to the lake this lake offers an exciting experience especially during dawn and dusk. For photographers its a delight during prayer time, you are not allowed to take photos of people when they take bath...More
