after leaving Udaipur which had definitly the cleanest station yet!!!
we ventured to Ajmer and got a taxi to Pushkar one of the holiest places in western India!!
Pushkar name comes from the Brahma believe whihc is one of the three main gods to do with Hinuism, Brahma was on a lotus flower and the holy town was berlieved to be created from one of Brhama's lotus petals falling down on this area in the hills
the area was definitly tranquil, many hindus pilgramage to this area in India to one of the only Brahma temples in the world!!
you can also have a special ritual in the lake in Pushlkar which is said to be holy, it is to do with the Hindu religion, they do special ritual, very hoily, if you believe in that thing!!
we then visited the Brahma temple one of the only ones, very deep and very spiritual so many hindues in there!!! no photos allowed!!
the day today was spent getting up very early to se the temple dedicated to Brahmas wife, and it was a 4 o'clock start trekking up very high, lets just say im so unfit now i reli havent doen excersise for a long time so i really did die and struggle!!
