  • The rajputana Sheraton at Jaipur and the Jaypee Palace were excellent but The Park in Delhi, wasn't in the same level, the public spaces like corridor were dirty.
    Excellent experience guided and suggested by an excellent tour conductor. Thanks a lot.

Pushkar Camel Fair is a rare combination of religious fervour and cultural vibrancy in Rajasthan. It is the best time when you can interact with tribal folks and understand their culture. The fair is organized in the holy town of Pushkar located about 13 km from Ajmer, on the edge of a small and beautiful lake. This quiet little town of eastern Rajasthan boasts of having the only temple dedicated to Lord Brahma in entire India. Apart from that, the holy town of Pushkar is visited for its over 400 temples and 52 bathing ghats. October to March is the best time suggested to visit Pushkar town.
