Sunset & Holy Bath in Pushkar Lake

During our 7 months trip in Asia, we had four challenging and amazing months in India. We spent one week in Pushkar, holy place for Hindu people in Rajasthan. Here, some hindu people take a sacred bath in Pushkar Lake, at the bottom of one of the 52 bathing ghats. A bath in this holy lake is believed to cleanse sins and cure skin diseases. This picture is my favorite from India with this amazing light which gives this picture a surreal vibe. :)
