Travel Blogs from Ajmer
We started from Gurgaon early morning to head for Ajmer. It was a long self drive in harsh summer. As usual, superb roads of Rajasthan, cruising and enjoying the drive. We bypassed Jaipur around lunch time. On the traffic signal, we asked one lady about the place to have a good lunch. She directed us to Hotel Safari in Jaipur which is on the way …
More travelling this morning. Another 3 hour journey in the jeeps to us to Pushkar, one of the religious centres of India. There is no meat or eggs on offer anywhere in the whole city so I'm going to have to develop a taste for vegetables. Our hotel is amazing and for the first time I got my own room. It even has a swimming pool! Decided to make the financially stupid decision of going on a camel safari, as ...

How has this hotel rated in the past?
While our road trip from Kanatal to Ahmedabad, we stopped over at Hotel Mansingh at Ajmer.
Food is very good. Location is also very near to the shrine of Khwaja Garib Nawaz.
