Pushkar Temples

The lake is surrounded by 52 bathing ghats and around 400 temples.  Pilgrims bathe in the sacred waters and perform ceremonies alongside the ghats.  One of teh ghats is called the Gandhi Glat where some of Gandhi's ashes were sprinkled.  Devout Hindus make at least one pilgrimage in their lifetime to Pushkar and bathe at the holy ghats to wash away their sins and earn a place in heaven.
