Hebrew signs in Pushkar

One of the oldest indian cities
One of the holiest cities in India.
400 temples.
1 of the few (if not only) brahma temple in the world
Home to the holy Pushkar lake

And yet..the sheer influx of Israeli tourists has this city putting up Hebrew signs, selling Israeli delicacies(veg of course) - many locals speak the language - it is not uncommon to hear people greet people with 'shalom'.There is even a community centre for the Israelis.

Gotta love capitalism.
