Despite having a distinct touristy flavour these days, Pushkar is still a bewitching little town. It is right on the edge of the desert and is only 11 kms from Shekhawati but separated from it by Nag Pahar, the Snake mountain. This traveller-friendly town clings to the side of the small Pushkar Lake with its many bathing ghats and temples. For Hindus, Pushkar is a very important pilgrimage centre and you'll see plenty of sadhus. Pushkar is perhaps best known for its Camel Fair which takes place here each October/November.
