We did a 16 days trip to Rajasthan visiting Pushkar, Ajmer, Mandawa, Nawalgarh, Dundlod, Bikaner, Jaisalmer, Udaipur & Jaipur. We had hired a taxi from Jaipur and would be covering these destinations one by one. Keep visiting!
Pushkar was the first leg of our long journey through one of the most traditional and colorful states in India, Rajasthan. Pushkar, the city famous with its origins through Lord Brahma is situated about 12 kms north west of Ajmer. We drove from Jaipur, starting at about 7:30AM with an excellent 4 lane highway all the way up to Ajmer. About an hour into the drive we stopped by a dhaba called Hotel Radhaswami for some chai and breakfast, however could not resists having some hot and delicious Tandoori Stuffed Parathas ( One of the best parathas I have had in recent times ). We reached Ajmer at about 10:30AM and checked into Hotel Regal, a fairly decent overnight place with available guest parking. Since the check in was only available after noon, we left our luggage with the front desk and left for Pushkar.
