The pious Pushkar Lake, believed to have been created by the falling of a lotus from the hand of Lord Brahma. It is considered to be as old as creation.
As per the Hindu Mythology there are Panch Sarovar (Five Lakes) namely Man sarovar, Bindu Sarovar, Narayan Sarovar, Pampa Sarovar and Pushkar Sarovar.
The lake is considered as one of the most sacred spots, and believed that one dip in the waters of the lake on Kartika Poornima is equivalent to performing yagnas for several hundred years.
The charming lake amidst the hills has fifty-two bathing ghats, built around lake. The water around each ghat is supposed to have special powers. The Naga Kund is believed to give fertility, Roop Tirth gives beauty and charm, Kapil Vyapi Kund water helps in curing leprosy and a dip in the Mrikand Muni Kund grants the boon of wisdom. The other important ghats are the Varah Ghat which is very sacred as Lord Vishnu is believed to have appeared here in the form of boar, the Brahma and Gau Ghat. A dip in the lake by a woman absolves her and her husband both .
For complete cleansing of sins, three twilight's must be passed at the pious city with baths at three Ghats.
