The Pushkar sarovar is noted for the fifty two bathing ghats and each is supposed to be sacred in its own right. Hindu devotees believe that a dip or having a holy bath in the waters of the Pushkar Lake on Kartika Purnima is equivalent to performing austerities and yagnas for several hundred years.
