I have no real time experience on working with Lightning Components but while going through the developer guide I see a lot of Javascript code. Is the lightning components can be developed only using the javascript? I had experience on working with visualforce but not on Javascript so is it must to learn javascript before I start development on Lightning.

You're definitely going to need to get comfortable with both Javascript and probably some jQuery too if you're going to do any amount of Lightning Component Development. I highly recommend you go through the Trailhead Lightning Components Module to get a taste for what's involved so you'll have a better feel for what you're going to need to know and learn. The Lightning Components Developer's Guide provides you with a Javascript Cookbook to help get you started, but not enough to keep you going for long.
