A quick visit to Ajmer and Pushkar continued

27 Oct

On our second last day of the trip, we decided to head out to Ajmer to see two very famous Jain temples of Nareli and Nasiyan. Since it was eid today we decided to skip a visit to the famous Dargah and instead check out the lake and old markets.

Well my verdict on Ajmer, we loved the 2 Jain temples and I recommend it for a visit to all non Jains too. Other than that Ajmer is quite a disappointment and you can give it a miss. There is nothing special about this place that catches your attention or makes it special.

We then returned to Pushkar and continued our lazing around in the local atmosphere, sights and eating some amazing Tibetan food in a beautiful garden restaurant under a canopy of leaves. Also saw the original Pushkar lake which is now dry and called Budhe or old Pushkar. Now ending my last night in Rajasthan under a star filled sky with some famous Rajasthani folk music and dances.

More to follow in a detailed post once I am back, but below is today’s installment of instagram post cards –

    You should go to Kashmir if one can go there now. It tends to get violent at times sadly. It is the most beautiful place I have ever seen.

      I agree its a stunning place and this year it has been peaceful and about 2 million tourists have visited it. Its also been on my list for a while now but somehow just not worked out yet. You seem to have travelled extensively within India?
