-- Ajmer, a Unique City --

I took the Shatabdi express from Delhi to Ajmer and reached Ajmer at noon. I checked into a moderately charged hotel and spent the afternoon lazing around in the hotel. All said and done, if you have travelled, you have to take rest after any travel, be it by road, rail or by air. To give you some more information on how to reach Ajmer, you can also take air-conditioned taxis or luxury buses to Ajmer from Jaipur, but since I live in Delhi, I preferred the train. One can also reach Jaipur by air and then and then reach Ajmer by road or train. The road or train journey takes 3 hours. Actually, it all depends on where you live. I visited the dargah, which has the tomb of Khawaja Moinuddin Chisti. Devotees form all over India visit the Dargah, to seek Khawaja Moinuddin Chistiís blessings. I visited the Dargah in the evening, which accidently turned out to be the best time to visit the dragah. For those who prefer luxury hotels, there is the Mansingh palace, Phoolmahal palace and Roopnagarh fort, which are all 5 star hotels. As these hotels are 5 star hotels, they are heavy on the pocket. I would suggest that one should not depend on mediators such as rickshaw drivers or rickshaw pullers, to ask them about any hotels, as they are usually clubbed with the hotels and take a commission from them, if they get clients for them. The Pushkar temple is also a must-visit destination in Ajmer.
