PUSHKAR - RAJ
The Lone Earthly Abode of Brahma

THE SWARUP GHAT

It is one of the important Ghats, and its strange history draws pilgrims in huge numbers. Every visitor invariably takes bath here. It is said that one prince' by name Narahar Rao visited this, when he was on his hunting expedition. Attracted by the crystal clear water, he took a little of it in his hands to drink. And lo! the white spots on his body-marks of leprosy soon disappeared. With a mere touch alone! And a permanent cure at it. Immediately, he ordered a big gnat with strong and broad embankment to be added to facilitate the visitors for safe and easy bath in this Pushkar. Since then it is believed to be a boon to lepers, and others suffering from skin diseases. Huge numbers greet the sight throughout the year.
