Historically, Pushkar always had great strategic importance and was sacked by Mahumud of Ghazni on one of his periodic forays from Afghanistan. Later it became a favorite residence of the great Mughals. The city was subsequently taken by the Scindias and, in 1818, was handed over to the British. There on, it became one of the few places in Rajasthan to be controlled directly by British rather than being part of a princely state.

Pushkar is merely 11 km from Ajmer and is significant for the famous fair held normally in the month of October/November.
