Colors of Pushkar

26 Oct

On our third day in Rajasthan, we found ourselves in the city of temples and color – Pushkar. This is one Indian city where there are more foreigners than Indians and every International cuisine is available that too in only vegetarian options. So it’s like heaven for me.

We spent the entire day seeing a few of the numerous temples, shopping from all the cheap local shops for all kinds of typical Rajasthani things and eating. Ate the best falafel possible, rabdi malpuas, banana nuttella pancake, muskmelon lime mint juice and ending the day with wood fired oven pizza. Yum yum yum…. Also for the first time heard the soulful music from a local instrument called a ravanhatta. Overall a day well spent.

There is nothing really to see in Pushkar but everything to experience. As always, detailed posts to follow later but signing off with a few pics –

      You know what’s surprising here, that there are hardly any Indian tourists. I only saw a few people at the temples and none otherwise. Anyways I am loving this place. Since you have been here, any recommendations?

        no recommendations that I’m sure you have not seen already. just soak in the atmosphere, eat the awesome pohe…and don’t bother going to ajmer. and if you do, be ready to get shocked at the dargah!

        Hey thanks, I had already left for my half day trip to see jain temples of Ajmer but I agree apart from those temples, Ajmer is quite avoidable. I’ll try the pohe tomorrow πŸ™‚
