Welcome to India and the start of your adventure with On the Go Tours. We'll be at the airport to greet you and transfer you to your hotel in Delhi where the remainder of the day is free for you to enjoy at leisure.
This morning is an early start as you board the Ajmer Shatabadi express bound for Ajmer. Seated in the A/C chair class carriage and leaving the city behind, look out upon a landscape of golden desert studded with green fields of agriculture and peaceful villages. Upon arrival to Ajmer a short drive brings you to your accommodation. After hotel check in and lunch, enjoy a guided visit of the Pushkar Fair.
After breakfast, head out to the glorious spectacle of cattle trading, religious pilgrimage, celebration and festivity at the Pushkar Camel Fair. Aside from the serious business of livestock trading, there’s the longest moustache competition, a camel beauty pageant, a cricket match, musicians, dancers, magicians and snake charmers as well as hundreds of authentic stalls to explore.
This morning offers free time before visiting the town of Ajmer Sherif. The most notable site is the resting place of the Sufi seer, Khwaja Muin-ud-din Chisti who died here in 1236 after six days of fasting and praying. Possibly the most important Muslim shrine in India fervent pilgrims patronize the shrine as did many of the Mughal rulers including that of Emperor Akbar. Leading off the Dargah Bazaar we enter the shrine via a gateway of immensely beautifully intricately carved silver doors. Onward to the station we board our train to Delhi arriving in the evening with a transfer to your hotel where you will join our Taj Traveller group tour.
