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.
Rooms are very poorly maintained and are old enough and worn-torn to be rated. Needs renovation desperately. Bathrooms are very old and require make over. We did not have any option so far, so good.

village which contained 3 houses and a temple, of course! Now this might just
be a personal interpretation of temple life, but it is certainly very different
here to churches that ...
... we head back to our hotel for lunch. 3 of us have massages booked for the afternoon, while others shopped, or headed back to town. I have now had massages in numerous countries: Canada, USA, Mexico and Ecuador. Must say, one can not be shy to have a massage in India, or at least at the Jagat Palace Hotel.
After a shower, I explored the hotel grounds, and even climbed onto the roof to take some sunset photos. A nice relaxing day.
... reverberates with the sounds of prayer,
drums, bells and singing as the evening worship begins, it has been magical to
hear and drowns out the incessant beeps of horns for a while at least! We can
both see how the extremely cheap living (our room is under £3 per night) and
abundance of shops and cafes to get lost in make this a key destination for any
long term traveller who has some time to spare.
The town itself is a busy one, but certainly not the ...
... Ganges shores at holy Varanasi, Pushkar Lake is surrounded by 52 bathing ghats for ritual purification, several of which are overrun with priests or those posing as them insistent on taking tourists for a puja (prayer) by the water for a negotiable donation. As well as a puja and blessing the tourist gets a Pushkar Passport, a red wrist band that proves to the world one has made the pilgrimage to Pushkar. Yes, I let myself get suckered into it for 200 rupees (about $3).
