Take off your shoes at stairs if you are going near the lake at Pushkar. But ensure that someone else doesn’t walk away with them.
Do not take photographs of locals/tourists bathing in the lake.
Just a heads up, be cautious while dealing with other vendors at any destinations. If you want to hire local travel guide, do not go with him alone. If you are a solo female tourist, safety is more important than price.
Be polite, but do not be pressured into making any offering at the ghats. It is not mandatory.
Be careful of scams.
We all at the community come with an open mind, however avoid wearing Western-style casual clothes such as a mini-skirt, shorts, tank tops, camisole, or tight-fitting t-shirts as this may be looked down upon in Pushkar Ghats & temples due to the religious sentiments of the locals. As mentioned earlier, the whole of town is considered to be sacred, so whatever rules generally apply to place of worship in India, apply to the whole of town.
