Pushkar is captivating. Bordering the Thar desert, it is one of the 5 holy sites in India and has 52 ghats. It is also one of the few places where a temple dedicated to Lord Brhama can be found.
Legend has it that Brahma dropped a lotus onto earth and from that point a lake miraculously appeared. Considering it a good omen Brhama decided to perform his yagna. His wife Saraswati failed to join him and so, he married a local maiden Gayatri and completed the ceremony with her. When Saraswati found out she was enraged and put a curse on Brahma in which from that day forth he would be worshiped only in the land of Pushkar and nowhere else on Earth.
