|Moti Doongri Fort near Lakshminarayan Mandir - Jaipur|
The roads to Pushkar were pretty good, except a few kilometres nearing the destination. We took the help of a guide who took us to the lake and bathing ghats. Priests usually compete to get your attention in order for them to do the pooja for you and ancestors. Since we had gone with the guide, he had arranged for one to do the pooja for us. Since both parents are alive and well, for both of us, it was a small disappointment for the priest as he would have wanted us to make sacred offerings in case of deceased parents, etc. Beware of very smooth talking people who would try to get you to donate huge sums for various causes at this place. We then went to the Brahma temple and had a good dharshan before heading back to Jaipur.

In the evening, a second visit to the market rounded off the stay at Jaipur, as we bought a few dresses, nuts, spices, chocolates, etc., before spending evening and the next day relaxing. We indulged further in sweets and good vegetarian food, bought many sweets for distribution to relatives, friends and colleagues before we big goodbye to the Pink city.
