Pushkar Lake is located in the town of Pushkar in Ajmer district of the Rajasthan state of western India. The beautiful Pushkar Lake is a sanctified spot, and considered as old as the creation, and has been a place of pilgrimage for the Hindus since time immemorial. It is surrounded by 52 bathing ghats, where devotees throng in large numbers to take a dip during the month of Kartik (Oct./Nov.). According to Padma Purana Lord Brahma was in search of suitable place for a Vedic en:yagna. While contemplating, a lotus fell down from his hand on the earth and water spurted from three places one of them was Pushkar and Brahma decided to perform his yagna over here. It is believed that this is also the site where the Sage en:Vishwamitra meditated for thousands of years. 26°28′0″N 74°33′0″E / 26.466667°N 74.55°E / 26.466667; 74.55
