Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture


The ‘hippie’ culture is very much alive in Pushkar, a town in the Indian state of Rajasthan.


Pushkar,one of the oldest cities in India (just two and half hour away from Jaipur) is tagged as a ‘hippie haven’ where you can find a large number of local and foreign hippies. According to some they visited the place during the Holi festival and ended up staying permanently.



This man is a Sadhu though, not a hippie. Sadhus are sanyasi, or renunciates, who have left behind all material attachments and live in caves, forests and temples all over India and Nepal.( Wikipedia)
