If the tourist spots in Pushkar have been explored and captured fully on your camera, do not head back to your hotel. There are places nearby this town that you can visit and utilise your vacation time aptly. Here are a few suggestions.

  • Ajmer

    This major city is located barely 11 km away from Pushkar, and what a waste it will be if you don't pay a visit here. The mausoleum of the Sufi saint, Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, known as Dargah Sharif is a site that people travel from far and wide to pay their homage to.
    The place is surrounded by the majestic
    Aravalli Hills. Besides you can also explore other historical monuments such as Taragarh Fort and Anasagar Lake.

  • Merta

    Popular as the hometown of saint Meera, this town is 50 km away from Pushkar, but the distance covered is worth it. Visit the famous Dudagarh Fort, which is noted for its 15th century architecture. Also, delve into the ruins of ancient forts such as Merta Fort and Malkot Fort.
    There is also the splendid Shahi Jama Masjid, built by the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb. And of course, you cannot miss the renowned Charbhuja Temple, dedicated to saint Meera.

Yes, we understand that there is so much to explore outside Pushkar and this will keep you tied for days. But that's what vacations are all about, isn't it?
