Jaipur Ajmer Pushkar Sightseeing Day Tour Packages from Jaipur
Meeting and assistance upon arrival as our representatives welcome you and escort you to your car. Later you will be taken for an excursion tour visiting Ajmer and Pushkar:
Ajmer is surrounded by the Aravalli Mountains. It is a pilgrimage centre for the shrine of the Sufi Saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti and is also the base for visiting Pushkar (11 km), an ancient Hindu pilgrimage city, famous for the temple of Brahma.
Later you will be taken to visit:
The Dargah Sharif of Khwaja Muddin Chishti is situated at the foot of the Taragah hill, and consists of several white marble buildings arranged around two courtyards, including a massive gate donated by the Nizam of Hyderabad and the Akbari Mosque, built by the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan. It contains the domed tomb of the saint. Akbar and his queen used to come here by foot on pilgrimage from Agra every year in observance of a vow when he prayed for a son. The large pillars called “Kose (‘Mile’) Minar”, erected at intervals of two miles (3 km) along the entire way between Agra and Ajmer mark the places where the royal pilgrims halted every day. It has been estimated that around 125,000 pilgrims visit the site every day.
Pushkar Lake or Pushkar Sarovar is located in the town of Pushkar. Pushkar Lake is a sacred lake of the Hindus. Pushkar Lake is surrounded by 52 bathing ghats (a series of steps leading to the lake), where pilgrims throng in large numbers to take a sacred bath, especially around Kartik Poornima (October–November) when the Pushkar Fair is held. A dip in the sacred lake is believed to cleanse sins and cure skin diseases. Over 500 Hindu temples are situated around the lake precincts.
Later in evening drive back to Jaipur.
