Pushkar Lake is one of the most important tourist attraction in Rajasthan and features on the itinerary of each and every visitor. Legend has it that the conception of lake was the result of a lotus falling off from Lord Brahma's hand who was greatly seeking a place to carry out a spiritual ceremony and a fire sacrifice generally known as a Yagna. Water instantly gushed forth from the spot and in this way lake came into being.

 The Pushkar Lake is the considered to be holy by most Hindus and a dip in the lake is detained to be very favorable. A single dip in the clean water of the lake on the occasion of Karthik Poornima, a full moon day in the Hindu month of Karthik, is no less than carrying out various yagnas or sacred ceremonies for more than a few years.

Apart from its spiritual significance, the location of the Pushkar Lake in the middle of hills makes it very pictorial. These hills are famed for the location of Saint Agasthya's cave in where this great saint is supposed to have meditate. Some people even accept as true that this was the place which Kalidasa chose to create his masterpiece 'Shakuntalam'.
