Pushkar - The Holy City

Day 2 -

After a hearty breakfast, we booked a cab for Pushkar from our resort. We opted for Ola Rentals (Package - 4 hours and 80 Kms) and it was quite comfortable and convenient. 
Savitri Temple -  It was approx 10:30 AM in the morning when we started our journey. In interest of time, we visited the Savitri temple first (First Wife of Brahma). It is situated on top of Ratnagiri hill and there are approx 1200 stairs to reach the temple. In addition to the stairs there is a ropeway too and we of-course opted for it. ;) 
Temple Timings - 5AM-12PM and 4PM-9PM
Tips - Do remember to cover the prasad as there are langurs near the temple and they would try all means to snatch the prasad.

Day 1 -
We chose the rail journey, booked New Delhi Ajmer shatabdi and hopped for an exciting trip. The journey was quite eventful. As always we were late and finally had to ask our driver to overspeed so that we could catch the train. It was nothing less than a roller coaster ride, zig zag trails, barging the red lights finally we reached the station on time - "We sat and the train started!" Reached Ajmer at around 2PM. Blistering sun right over our heads, we headed towards the IRCTC restaurant - Cafe Delight, for grabbing a quick lunch.
