From Jaipur in Indian state of Rajasthan we caught a short bus ride to Pushkar, a very small holy town with a central lake. The small city size kept everything walking distance, which was always desirable when travelling, the bus stop was only a short walk to the main streets and lake.
One of the oldest existing cities in India associated with the Hindu god of creation, Brahma. The Brahma Temple is one of few existing temples and the most prominent of them.
Unfortunately, by this time in our trip Sonya had got a serious case of ‘delhi belly’ (food poisoning) and was out of action for most of this leg, fortunately, this was her second time visiting so she didn’t mind missing out on the sights. While Sonya spent most of the time recovering, I made the solo journey up Ratnagiri Hill which presented beautiful views of the main lake and surrounding ghats and temples.
A few days after our arrival, when Sonya had recovered we left towards Jodhpur, nicknamed the ‘Blue City’.
