* Pushkar Temple Rishikesh Uttarakhand India

Three photos of the Pushkar Temple on Pushkar Mandir Rd, Rishikesh, district of Uttarakhand, India. One of the most beautiful, colorful, and intricately decorated temples I saw in Rishikesh. It is listed as one of the oldest temples in the area.

Finding it was a bit  of a miracle. I had one of those “not to scale” maps that meant the street I was looking for could have been a couple blocks or a couple miles down the road! I simply followed my intuition and managed to turn down the right road; it was only a short walk from the Ram Jhula Bridge.

As I walked along, two boys on bikes said, “Hello!” I greeted them as well, and asked, “Temple?” They pointed further down the street I was on.

The street here is very narrow hence the slightly skewed photos. At the time I was there, the temple was closed and wouldn’t open for several hours, so I had to miss the interior.
