This tour will take you on a cultural journey to pilgrimage locations revered by both Hindus and Muslims, as well as sacred spots, centers of culture, local shops and traditional rooftop restaurants.
Ajmer is a center of culture and education and boasts the prestigious Mayo College, a school which was once exclusive for Indian nobility. It is now one of the best public schools in the country.
Pushkar has the distinction of having the only Brahma temple in the world and the Picturesque Pushkar Lake is a sacred spot for Hindus. Situated on the edge of the desert, it is separated from Ajmer by the Nag Parbat (the snake hill).
The town itself provides great excitement for tourists, with narrow lanes lined with shops selling various accessories and rooftop restaurants. The town maintains its mystical charm and is world-famous for its cattle fair normally held in the Hindu month Kartika, which is normally in October-November. At this time the town is jam-packed with tourists from almost everywhere. It is commonly known as the Camel fair, bringing with them several camels and cattle to the pilgrimage.
For a devout Hindu, Pushkar is a very important pilgrim center and to visit this holy place for a dip in the sacred lake is a once in a lifetime experience!
