Pushkar 

THE TOWN OF FAIRS AND FESTIVITIES

Pushkar is one of the oldest cities in India. Located to the northwest of Ajmer, the tranquil city of Pushkar is a favoured destination for thousands of tourists and devotees flocking to Rajasthan. Situated at a height of 510 metres, Pushkar is surrounded by hillocks on three sides. The ‘Nag Pahar’, literally meaning Snake Mountain forms a natural border between Ajmer and Pushkar. Known as ‘the rose garden of Rajasthan’, the essence of the famous Pushkar rose is exported all over the world. Along with an interesting mythological history, a legacy of timeless architectural heritage makes Pushkar a fascinating city.

According to legends, Lord Brahma, believed to be the creator of the Universe dropped a lotus to the ground leading to the immediate creation of a lake. He then decided to name the place after the flower, and thus the name, Pushkar. The city of Pushkar is home to the only temple dedicated to Lord Brahma in the whole world. Hindus consider a journey to Pushkar to be the ultimate pilgrimage that must be undertaken to attain salvation.

A word from your teachers 

 

🦋 ZaRa

 

Raks Kheperu / Tribal Bellydance is the dance of the feminine - a sacred dance of the hips, belly, heart and emotion. Women have gathered for many 1000s of years to dance this ritual. Tribal bellydance has elements of Egyptian Bellydance and Indian Fusion with the classical Dances of Kathak and Odissi. Let me guide and teach you to rejuvenate your womb and female power. To find shining beauty and grace. The reward is the light you will illuminate to the world 💫

 

with love ❤️ ZaRa (light of sunrise)

🦋 Tejaswini Gautam

 

As an Odissi dancer, there is nothing more fulfilling than bringing a story to life through my dance.

Through the beautiful expressions, intricate mudras, and impeccable footwork, I hope to take you on a journey of divine love, beauty, and grace. Odissi dance is not just a form of art but a way of life for me, and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to share my passion with the world.

I hope this Temple Goddess Retreat inspires you to explore the beauty of Indian classical dance and its rich cultural heritage. Join me in celebrating the magic of Odissi and its timeless beauty.

With love and gratitude,

Tejaswini Gautam
