6-Seater Auto-rickshaw at Ajmer
Visited Ajmer around mid-Oct 2011. Accidentally, came across three well mannered and decent auto rickshaw drivers at Ajmer belonging to the same family. The rickshaws are clean. No hazzle in price fixing. You may use for visiting any place within Ajmer including crowded markets. They patiently wait for you. They will drop you up to your point of get down. This arrangement works well if you use the rickshaw for 4 or more. The price works out to around Rs. 75/hr (min. 4 hrs)
If rick of one is not available, they themselves will send the other. They will take you to good shops and eating places. They are sincere and do not get commission from any shop. Amit (cell: 9782121570), the smartest of the three; Madhav (cell: 9983601510) and Ram Karan (cell: 9782121570). You need not have to talk about the price. Simply use the rickshaw and pay the money as per the guideline. You may pay more if you further like their service.
There are buses that depart pretty regulary to Pushkar from near the Nasiyan (red) Temple on Prithvi Raj Road. The trip is very scenic as you go over the hills that form the Aravali Range and it takes about 30 minutes and costs just Rs8.
After I arrived by train into Ajmer, I decided to spend a couple of hours to see the sights of Ajmer before taking a bus to Pushkar. I took an autorickshaw on a tour where my driver to me to the main sight first - the Dargah through narrow streets that were barely wide enough for us and with deep open sewers either side. I put my backpack on the rear shelf and he looked after it as I explored. We then went to the Ana Sagar (large lake to the north of the city), the Nasiyan (red) Temple and Akbar's Palace before dropping me off where the bus departs for Pushkar.
Ajmer Junction Station is on the Delhi-Ahmedabad-Mumbai section of the Western Railways. It is connected to metro cities by broad gauge line. Ajmer has super fast, express and mail trains running to Delhi, Mumbai, Jaipur, Ahmedabad and Jodhpur. I came here from Jaipur on the Aravali Express (No.9708) which left Jaipur at 08:45 and arrived shortly after 11am.
