Tips about Pushkar

Be careful, some local people will try to give you flowers and make some prier for you. Then they will ask you a donation (sometimes big amounts). Contrary to what they will tell you, it is rare that these donations are used for temples or peoples in needs.

The mendicity is important in Pushkar, so if you can, help people in difficulty (especially in the camps). Instead of money, it is better to give them food or camping equipment to take care of their family.
