The other things

While talking about Ajmer, apart from Ajmer Dargah there is a lot more to it. Tugged beautifully on the rugged Aravalli ranges, Ajmer is a bustling city with chaotic markets and unending traffic that portray a beautiful picture of Muslim architecture. In spite of being the most sacred of all Muslim pilgrimage places of India, tourists from different culture, community, religion and race visit the city to pay their homage to the shrine. Ajmer attractions vary from pilgrim spots to lakes and from forts to museums. Again, its market place with age-old shops selling Rajasthani handicrafts and delicacies are a delight to every tourist’s eye.

  1. I visited the area in 1999. sadly I took one photo and have lost my diaries. it’s so long ago I really cant remember much about it. one day I’ll get back to India and get here, it looks wonderful thanks for sharing

    1. Its sad that you lost your diary..but I am sure when you will visit the place you find same more or less..I visited twice and found remain same :).. Let me know then if you need any assistance from my side…will love to guide you 🙂

  2. Ajmer Sharif is there on my bucketlist. Funny… inspite of staying in India, how some of the places take so long to visit ! I guess reaching there is a bit time consuming, say if you are in Pune, especially when the closest airport is far off. Will a weekend be sufficient, in your opinion ?

    1. Well, I guess that one weekend is enough for exploring Ajmer and Pushkar both. Suppose if you will fly on Friday,so you will reach Jaipur and from there Ajmer is 3 hours by road. So you have two days time to visit
      Ajmer and Pushkar both.. and again return to Jaipur on Sunday evening. So that you can easily avail the monday morning flight from there.
