Travelling From Delhi to Pushkar

After a hectic week, the weekend calls for a relaxing getaway that can rejuvenate your energy. If you want a not-so-tiring trip to a nearby destination then a trip to Pushkar from Delhi is a no-brainer. This getaway offers mesmerising views of picturesque temples and beautiful lakes surrounding the small town. However, a trip to Pushkar is incomplete without a visit to Ajmer, as the cities are not too far from each other.

Pushkar is a small town in Rajasthan located a few hours away from Jaipur. It is a quaint destination surrounded by lakes on three sides and dunes on one side. It offers breathtaking views of quaint architecture built centuries ago with ancient temples that give the city a pious vibe. On the other hand, Ajmer is home to the famous pilgrimage Dargah Sharif, the tomb of Sufi Saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti and surrounded by the Aravalli Mountains, which offers a pleasant view to its visitors.
