This morning set out to explore the Capital city of Rajasthan resplendent with the glory of the Rajput Maharaja Jai Singh who built magnificent edifices and ruled from here over two centuries ago. Visit the City Palace and Museum, Hawa Mahal, Jantar Mantar, palaces and gardens, colourful bazaars filled with exotic finery. Later ride a royal elephant to the ramparts at the Fortress of Amber. Admire the Durbar Halls, the exquisite adornments, carvings and priceless collections of Rajput Princes. You have the option of watching a sound and light show at Amber which brings Jaipur's vibrant history alive. Return to your hotel late evening.
Depart early by road for Pushkar, 150 kms, scene of the largest and most colourful gathering of Rajasthani folk ever witnessed. Every year, on a particularly auspicious full moon night (Nov. 01/02 this year), thousands converge to have a sacred dip in the holy lake at Pushkar. It is also the scene of a traditional cattle fair. The Rajasthan Government has made special arrangements for tourists to stay and enjoy the festive spirit that prevails here: traditional folk musicians, dancers, village competitions, camel races and plenty of folklore. Overnight will be in deluxe tents under a huge silvery moon.
Note: Ajmer is an interesting town near Pushkar, which you can visit enroute to Pushkar. The 'dargah' - mausoleum and mosque of saint Moinuddin Chishti is a big draw.
Merge with the vibrant Rajasthani folk in this delightful carnival of colour, revel in song and dance in this village that never sleeps. Overnight in tents.
After breakfast depart 150 kms by road to Jaipur for convenient connections to Delhi or Mumbai.
