Full Day Pushkar Tour from Jaipur by Car and Driver

Same-Day-Jaipur-To-Pushkar

Trip Details

Pushkar is a holy city in Rajasthan, famous for its Brahma temple, lake, ghats, and bazaar. Pushkar is situated at a distance of 142 km from Jaipur.

Pushkar is one of the five sacred dhams (pilgrimage site) for devout Hindus. The word ‘Pushkar‘ means lotus flower, which is said to be the seat of Brahma, one of the Hindu holy trinity, who is worshipped as the creator of this world. The legend has it that the demon Vajra Nabha killed Brahma’s children, he in turn struck him with his weapon, a lotus flower. Vajra Nabha died with the impact, and the petals of the lotus fell at three places. One of them is Pushkar, where it gave birth to a lake. Brahma is supposed to have performed sacrifice at this lake on Kartik Purnima (the full moon day of the Kartik month (generally in the month of November)), hallowing the place.

Though Brahma is considered to be the creator of the world, Pushkar is the only temple of this important deity in the whole world. This is also considered as Adi Teerth or Teertharaj meaning ancient holy place or the most important of holy places respectively. There are not many temples built for Brahma because his influence to the daily life is considered not a big as Vishnu (Preserver), Shiva (Destroyer) and Ganesh (Remover of Obstacles). Being the creator, whatever being created is already there, whereas other deities’ need to be appeased so that any wishes or favours can be granted or fulfilled.

Early in the morning our driver will pick you up from your hotel or any other location in Jaipur and escort you to your car. Later you will be taken for an excursion tour visiting Ajmer and Pushkar.
