From Jaipur you can take a bus, Train anything because it's only 131km. I would like to suggest you that if possible and the weather will be pleasant then took a 2 wheeler and drive yourself.......

Day 1

When you will reach Ajmer Shariff you will find out that so many people come to pray of every religion... I also gone there with the hope that he will listen me and give me what I want(I know it's lil bit selfish) But most of time we only remember God when we are in trouble or we want something....

First thing I do that I will go Directly to the Dargah(Holy Place)

PUSHKAR LAKE (history attached with this Lake)

History: According to Hindu theology, the pond at the Katas Raj Temples near Choa Saidan Shah in Chakwal District of Pakistan has a theological association with Shiva; it was formed by the tears of Lord Shiva which he is believed to have shed after the death of his wife, Sati. The story goes that when Sati died, Shiva cried so much and for so long, that his tears created two holy ponds – one at Pushkara in Ajmer in India and the other at Ketaksha, which literally means raining eyes, in Sanskrit. It is from this name that the word Katas is derived. It is often called "Tirth Raj" – the king of pilgrimage sites – and has in recent years become a popular destination for foreign tourists.

Day 2

Next Day we gone to visit Brahma Temple (history attached with this temple)

History : According to legend, Brahma was in search of a place for Mahayagna and he found this place suitable. After a long time, Brahma came to known that a demon, Vajranash, was killing people here so the Lord intoned a mantra on a lotus flower and killed the demon. During this process the parts of flower fell on three places which were later known as Jyaistha, Madhya and Kanistha Pushkar. After this Brahma performed a yagna to protect this place from demons. The consort of Brahma, Savitri, were needed to offer Ahuti for the yagna but she was not there that time so Gayatri, a Gurjar girl, was married to brahma and performned yagna. This act made first wife of Brahma, Savitri, angry and she cursed Brahma saying that he would be worshiped in Pushkar only.(Wikipedia)
