One of the main pilgrim destinations in the country, Pushkar and Ajmer are holy cities of two major communities in the country. Where one can get a whiff of the rural side of Rajasthan at Pushkar, at Ajmer you can enjoy the sight of the green Aravalli Hills that surround the city.
Filled with temples and bathing Ghats that are always buzzing with festivity and fairs, and some of the most famous mosques in the country both Pushkar and Ajmer give you a glimpse of the vibrant blend of colours, cultures and people in India. Pushkar is also one of the very few places in the world that has a temple dedicated to Lord Brahma. Whilethe sun drowns the cities in local bazaars, parades and other cultural events, the night brings along chimes from the temples and prayers from the mosques.
