Pushkar Rajasthan

By sawsengee  
The tranquil moment of Pushkar Rajasthan captured during a fine blue hour with reflection from the lake. The background snake-like mountain bordering the west of this tiny desert town is topped by the Gayatri Mata Temple (Pap-Mochani) which is accessible by foot.
According to the hindu Puranic scriptures, Goddess Gayatri was the second wife of Lord Brahma (the Creator in the Holy Trinity) and the red pavilion on the lake shore was reputedly the spot where a lotus petal from heaven fell on to form the lake. Here is a link to explain the portal of Goddess Gayatri:
