After breakfast, drive to Ajmer. Enjoy a half day sightseeing tour of Ajmer. The city of Ajmer houses the Dargah or tomb of the popular 13th-century Sufi Saint Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chisti. The Dargah is one of the holiest places of worship in India not only for Muslims but also for people of other faiths who hold the saint the high esteem. Its main attraction is the mausoleum containing the tomb of the saint, which is the sanctum of the Dargah. The Dargah includes many other attractive buildings, tombs, courtyards and Daalaans, some of which are exquisite specimens of the Moghul architecture. Later drive to Pushkar - The picturesque Pushkar is set in a valley just about 14 km off Ajmer. Surrounded by hills on three sides and sand dunes on the other, Pushkar forms a fascinating location and a befitting backdrop for the annual religious and cattle fair. It is said that in battle lord Brahma killed the demon Vajra Nabh with a lotus flower, whose petals floated down to earth and landed in three places in and around Pushkar where lakes sprang up. The charming Pushkar lake amidst the hills has fifty-two bathing ghats, built around lake. The water around each ghat is supposed to have special powers. Pushkar is a city of temples of all sizes. Visit the famous Brahma Temple, said to be the only temple dedicated to Brahma in India. In the evening return back to Jaipur. Overnight stay in Jaipur.

The old city of Jaipur is painted pink, which gives it a magical glow. Visit the Amber Fort… a fascinating blend of Hindu and Mughal architecture. The best way to explore the fort is to ride up to it on elephant back. Later, stop to photograph the beautiful Hawa Mahal, also known as the “Palace of the Winds.” This beautiful façade with its ornately carved latticework windows is made of pink sandstone. Post lunch, visit the City Palace… again, a synthesis of Rajasthani and Mughal styles. Later, visit the Jantar Mantar Observatory, comprising geometric devices for measuring time.
