Besides the holy pool of water
Pushkar Lake is the prime choice for your Instagram pictures which you will never disagree with. The devotees usually come here to have a dip in the holy lake to wash away their sins. As this is one of the sacred places, you are not supposed to enter the premises with your footwear. This lake, engulfed by 50 bathing ghats is ideal for photography in the evening. With the setting of the sun, the clouds painted orange, no doubt, this will the picture with maximum Instagram likes in your blog. Also, make sure you wear something covering your knees to avoid awkward glances from the locals as this a religious place.
Trek to the top of the hill
Not only for the photo fanatics but also for the adventure seekers, Savitri temple is a picture-perfect scene. This temple is located on the top of a hill giving you a 360-degree view of Pushkar. It can be reached in fifteen minutes from the lake, but I would suggest you start the trek in absolute darkness. Yes, begin to trek somewhere around 5 in the morning, so you be on the peak right for the breath-taking sunrise. The trek is a little hard, take it if you are ready to drop some sweat otherwise there is a rope carriage you can pay for.
With the sun at its golden hours, delve into the photography session which will surely fetch the amazing Instagram style picture you wish for. I would advise you to wear some track pants and t-shirts along with your shoes. As well as, beware of the monkeys as they might try to steal food from your bags.
