The date of its actual founding is not known, but legend associates Lord Brahma with its creation. It is mentioned that Brahma performed penance here for 60,000 years to have glimpse of Radha Krishna. The Ramayan mentions Pushkar and says that Vishvamitra performed tapa here. It further says that the Apsara Menaka came to Pushkara to bathe in its sacred waters.
Pushkar is a fantastic interplay of history and mythology that makes it worthwhile to travel to this holy destination of Rajasthan. According to lore, the city of Pushkar came into being After a battle between Lord Brahma and a demon named Vajra Nabh. After the demon was killed by Brahma with the help of a lotus flower, three petals floated down to Earth and landed in Pushkar leading to the creation of the three lakes of Pushkar.

Navin Benson de Cozynuk à été absolument remarquable tant pour son professionnalisme que pour sa bienveillance, à faire que notre voyage en INDE , soit un voyage fabuleux. Une grande ponctualité du chauffeur, des hôtels très bien choisis, des visites organisées. Un tour organisé sur mesure. Un très grand merci.
Agencia 100% fiable. Navin y su equipo nos han tratado fantásticamente y Bophal, el conductor, ha sido sin duda lo mejor del viaje. Atento, agradable y muy cercano. Si contactais con la agencia preguntad por él y seguro que no os arrepentis. Gracias por todo. ♥️
We are a family of 5 with 3 kids and we traveled around northern India for over 2 weeks. The planning of such a trip takes alot of time and details. If found the perfect company with Xasmin (CozyNuk) working particularly Navin. I would without hesitation use Navin again to help plan a future trip to India (which was magical).
