In Hindu religion, Brahma is believed to be the creator of this world and Pushkar is the most important temple.
Pushkar Lake sits in the center of Pushkar. This lake is believed to be sacred, as it is believed that it was created by one of the petals of Brahma's lotus flower. Today, it is a part of the pilgrimage for Hindus and is surrounded by a series of steps where many people enter the lake for ritual bathing. There are many temples in Pushkar, though most do not allow non-Hindus or foreigners to enter. The two temples that should be at the top of your list are the Brahma Temple and the Savitri Temple.

The Brahma Temple is dedicated to Lord Brahma, who is believed to be part of the Hindu holy trinity. There is always chanting happening at the temple during sunrise and sunset. Be sure to remove your shoes before entering and bags and cameras are not allowed inside.

The Savitri Temple is dedicated to the wife of Brahma. In order to enter the temple, you must climb six hundred and fifty steps. This, of course, offers an incredible view of Pushkar and the lake in the center of the city. It is recommended that you see this view for sunrise.

There is also a palace in town, called Man Mahal, which is on Pushkar Lake. It has been converted into the Hotel Pushkar Palace but was originally built as a guesthouse for Raja Man Singh.

For quite a cultural activity, you can bathe in the Pushkar Lake. Keep in mind, the water is by no means regulated, however, it is said to be cleaner than the Ganges. Another cultural activity is to observe the evening prayers at Varah Ghat, which involves lanterns and bells. If you plan on visiting the Brahma Temple, be sure to watch the Hare Krishna chanting that takes place at sunrise.
