Though an unplanned trip sounds quite exciting, it’s a hassle that you may have never imagined. To start with, you ought to have an itinerary in place, specially for a place that’s as exhaustive as Ajmer. A perfect itinerary to the city can be:

  • Day 1

Dargah Sharif is certainly a perfect start to your tour to Ajmer. Pay obeisance at the tomb of Khwāja Mu'īnuddīn Chishtī. Let a sense of divine assail all others for some time as you enter the holy precinct that is believed to have led to miracles. Say a dua (prayer) or two at one of the holiest places of the entire country and you are good to go. On your way out, feast yourself with the special vegetarian thalis and kulfis at the Dargah Bazaar. Akbar’s Palace and Museum, the other star attraction of Ajmer ought to be the next place in your itinerary. The museum houses some of the most impressive sculptures found around. You can head off to Taragarh Fort from in the afternoon, for the fort usually closes by 5 pm and looks enchanting with sun giving it a strange aura. You can walk off the trail that leads to it on the steep hillside or get a taxi. On your way down to the city, check out the marvellous Soni Ji Ki Nasiyan temple.

Other than the religious factor, it’s a breathtaking structured, considered as one of the best built Jain temples in the entire Rajasthan. Don’t fail to look overhead once you enter the inner chambers, for balls of silver hang from the roof! And to put an glorious end to your first day at Ajmer, there’s the Ana Sagar Lake that shimmers with thousands of light bulb reflections. A scrumptious dinner on your way back is all that you need before you tuck yourself for the night.

  • Day 2

A relatively short ride of 30 minutes to Pushkar should be your priority for your second day at Ajmer. This holy town has plenty of surprises, including the famous Pushkar Lake and Brahma Temple. Some 43 kms down the SH 140 will lead you straight to Kishangarh. Roam around to your heart’s desire around this sleepy town and bag in the famous miniature paintings and it’s time to burn more rubber. SH 140 will again be your territory if you’ve time for Jaipur, another must visit neighborhood of Ajmer.

With an itinerary in place now, start packing your bags for this trip of a lifetime. You’ll have memories that will last for a lifetime. Ajmer calling!
