Last updated:

I went on a short trip to Rajasthan in late 2018 to visit Ajmer, a city known for the shrine of the Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti. After spending a few days eating and drinking, people-watching, and wandering around the city, I decided to go to Pushkar.

Pushkar, around 15 kilometres from Ajmer, is a colourful and interesting town. The ghats, the temples, the food, the people and their cloths — everything about Pushkar made me grateful for having made a decision to visit it.

My trip was just before the beginning of the Pushkar camel fair in November. Although I missed the opportunity to attend the fair, I was able avoid the influx of visitors that flock to this colourful town during the fair.

Streets of Pushkar is a collection of some photographs I took over the course of two days. I wish I could spend more time there but I would love to visit again whenever I get a second chance. Photos from the trip to Ajmer are available in Streets of Ajmer collection.
