“Dargah Shariff, needs attention and care.”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

While on a holiday to Ranthambore and Jaipur, we decided to take a day's excursion to Pushkar and Ajmer. Ajmer is a city founded by Prithviraj Chauhan. The city has narrow roads and has heavy traffic of all sort of vehicles.
Dargah sharrif is a religious destination visited by people of all faith. VVIPS also visit the Dargah.
But I regret to state that the place needs attention and care of authorities who manage this attraction. The area surrounding the place is overcrowded, dirty and flooded with beggars and touts. All are warned of pick-pocketers.
The only motorable approach is closed and open only to VIPs. One has to take an auto or cycle - rikshaw to reach Dargah, the route is narrow ,crowded and dirty. Hotels too are not upto the mark.
As a religious place , it has its own importance, but otherwise it should be avoided.

“Dargah of Khwaja Garib Nawaz, the sufi saint!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Few tips when visiting the dargah:
1. Do not carry any handbags. Do not wear any snatch-able jewellery.
2. Carry min cash,may be Rs 500-1500 only. A basket of flowers, Incense sticks & holy threads costs between Rs 50 - 150 and a chaddar for the mazar costs between Rs 250 - 1100.
4. Engage a khadim ( available for a fee from Rs 250 - 500) who will be your guide for a visit to the dargah. Make an enquiry for a khadim at any of the shops selling baskets of flowers inside the dargah.
3. Carry a scarf or a dupatta ( for ladies) and a cap ( for men) to cover your head.
4. Early mornings and late evenings are the best times to visit.
5. You can enjoy sufi music every evening at the dargah.

On the way back to Mumbai from Vaishnodevi, we decided to have a holy bath in Pushkar Lake and visit the Dargah of Garib Nawaz. We landed in Ajmer by around 01:00 p.m. and engaged a taxi to visit Pushkar. On the way, we had our lunch. It was a really enriching experience to have bath in Pushkar lake where we have the one and only temple to Lord Brahma. However, one has to be careful with the punditjis who are ready to empty your pocket/purse. Initially, the guide seems so innocent that he says don't give anything more than Rs.21/-, but ultimately, they milk you in the name of offering RAJ BHOG/MEETHA BHOG / CHAWAL BHOG. However, the temple is completely different experience. Lord Brahma is unique in his only abode in this earth. From there, we visited Dargah which is at walkable distance from Ajmer station(15 minutes). Though it is too crowded for comfort, one can feel the positive vibrations as we enter the precinct, no matter which religion you belong to. Must visit place for all. And finally, don't forget to taste the Malpuvah and Son Halwa...
