What are the different modes to travel within Ajmer?

The picturesque city of Ajmer is, thankfully, well endowed with all the infrastructural facilities. Commuting within the city is not a tough task at all and there are plenty of options to choose from, like:

  • Walking

There’s no other mode of transport that can equal the fun of walking the alleys of this city. Treading down the winding alleys of Dargah Bazaar, taking a walk to the Ana Sagar Lake, or marvelling at the old structures in the side streets of the dargah - it’s best done of foot. All the major attractions can easily be covered on foot, except the Taragarh Fort that’s situated on a hillside, Nagapahari.

  • Carriages

Carriages (yes, the horse-drawn ones), can also be taken for a whirlwind trip to Ajmer. A ride of around INR 100 or less can take you on bumpy yet enjoyable ride at the enchanting side of the city. But the flipside is that  carriages are allowed on just some specific road stretches.

  • Rickshaws

You can also take a fun rickety ride on the cycle or auto rickshaws that roam the streets at Ajmer. A bit of haggling can get you around the city for as low as INR 50! And though you may find auto rickshaw drivers quite keen to take you to Pushkar, don’t fall for it if you don’t want to.

Mini buses also ply between the railway station and bus stand, with a nominal fare of INR 10. You can also cover the neighbouring Pushkar by taking a RSTC bus for around INR 15. Soak in as much of this oasis city as you can, for it’s a trip of a lifetime. Roam!
