Why to visit Naga Pahar

Also known as the Snake Mountain, this mountain lies between the town of Ajmer and Pushkar.Agastya Muni is said to have lived in Naga Pahar, which is located between Pushkar Lake and Ajmer. Visiting both this mountain and the Kund, according to the scriptures, is highly beneficial for warding off evil. This mountain, in addition to its religious significance, offers breathtaking views of Pushkar and its surroundings of the whole city. It is said by a legend that the hill's height will continue to fall over time, until it ultimately vanishes completely. You won't regret climbing to the top of this mound, whether you believe in it or not.

Also travellers says that pilgrims commonly visit the cave of the Agastya Muni on the hill, as well as the Nag Kund, which is supposed to have been the home of Brahmas son Vatu after he was sentenced by Rishi Chyavan for mischief. The calm peaceful aura of Pushkar and scenic scenery will make your hiking trip both spiritual and enjoyable. You will undoubtedly be amazed by the spectacular view from the top in the evening time,when the city is whole illuminated.It's no surprise that photographers make it a point to snap the breathtaking vistas of the town below from this vantage point.

Special Tip

You can indulge into trekking or climbing at the top of the mountain, which gives scenic breathtaking views. I would recommend you to trek during afternoon to see the illuminating city in the evening.
