At a distance of 1 km from Alampur Bus Station, Pushkar Ghat built on Tungabhadra River is situated toward South-East corner of the Jogulamba Temple.

The Ghat, built on an elevated base, provides panoramic view of the Alampur temples, Alampur village and Tungabhadra River. Devotees take bath in the ghat before visiting Goddess Jogulamba on special days. During Dusshera and annual festival, the ghat attracts large crowd who take bath in River Tungabhadra on those auspicious days.

Boating on Coracles is also available in Tungabhadra River at Pushkar Ghats. You can also see several people swimming here in the River. This place is quite safe for swimming and boating. Several people do fishing near the ghats during non-peak season.
