After long wait, I got a chance to visit to Rajashthan with my family. It was complete one week trip. We started our journey from Jaipur. By evening I reach to Jaipur airport, which is the only international airport in the state of Rajasthan.

Pushkar and Ajmer: Ajmer's pre-eminence is due to the shrine of a Muslim saint who is believed to fulfill one's wishes. It derives its name from `Ajaya Meru' the invincible hill, at the foot of which the present city stands. Ajmer is very close to the holy city of Pushkar, the abode of Lord Brahma, one of the very few temples dedicated to Brahma the Creator is located here. For more details about Pushkar you can visit "Puskar Temple", Only temple of "lord Bramha".
