Pushkar: Water Rituals
25 Pushkar: Water Rituals

A woman performing her early morning Puja in Pushkar, opposite the main Ghats, in a rather secluded part of the sacred tank. It was amazing to observe how agile even older women were, when climbing and descending the high stone steps, urging to touch the water. The rituals were performed every day, accompanied by prayers and chants. A peaceful, enchanting scene.
