Ajmer, where lands meet mountains and the natives meet hearts.
Ajmer, where a 'chaaiwala' owns the richest heart than a millionaire of the metro-city.
Ajmer, where you are not invited to a home, but welcomed by the whole parish.
They welcome us like they were missing us.
They treat us like one among them.
They are witty. They are crazy. They are lovely.
Lights, Sweets, Crackers & Above all, the people out here make Ajmer more delightful.
While leaving, I am sure Diwali will never be the same.
It's more brighter & sweeter when I try to foresee the day.
Thank you, Nidhi Mishra, for having us here" -Harsh Mohan & Nitin Rao.
These are the words from my friends that happen to join me to my hometown Ajmer - The Celestial City, this diwali.
Ajmer is not just a tourist destination; it is an experience that stays with you long after you leave. Surrounded by Aravalli Mountains, Ajmer has marked its rank in one of the major cities of Rajasthan.
Though it is categorised as a bustling chaotic city by a few people, it has many attractions for national as well as international visitors. Among these attractions, the most famous termini are:
'Tirtha Raj' - Pushkar:
Pushkar-the Tirtha Raj is a little lakeside village situated thirteen kilometers away from Ajmer and is the tourist anchorage. Tirtha raj literally means king of pilgrim sites. Pushkar is a famous place and is very popular among international tourists for its annual fair and bohemian spirit. The Nag Pahar or Snake Mountain and the edge of the Thar Desert surround the small village.
