What to Expect
This full-day tour offers an interesting glimpse into two completely different cultures. While the city of Pushkar is sacred for the Hindus, Ajmer is a pilgrimage spot for the Muslims.

Pushkar is a very important pilgrimage centre for the Hindus. It is a lake-side town with many temples and bathing ghats where throughout the year, devotees from across the city to take a ritualistic dip in the holy Pushkar Lake. In fact, some scholars suggest that the ritualistic cleansing in Pushkar lake predates to the ancient Indian era. Besides the lake, Pushkar offers a colossal Bhrama temple, only one of the three in the entire world.

15 km from Pushkar is the holy town of Ajmer. Owing to the Dargah of a Sufi Persian Saint called Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti(also known as Ajmer Sharif Dargah) who once lived and preached in Ajmer, the city is now a sacred pilgrimage spot for the Muslim community. After Chisti's death, a mausoleum was built on his grave and the Mazar (mausoleum) eventually went on to become the Mughal Emperor Akbar's favourite sanctuary. Chronicles frequently record his visits to the Ajmer Dargah, a place where the Emperor believed as peaceful and conducive to prayer.
