Pushkar and Nathdwara Temples [ Rajasthan ]

We are almost at the end our planned tour and there are two more temples you should see. One is Pushkar which is one of the oldest city in the world and Nathdwara, Temple of one of the Avatar of Lord Krishna.

Udaipur Nathdwara Pushkar Jaipur

Udaipur to Nathdwara :

  • Distance from Udaipur : 45Km
  • Time taken : 1 hr approx.
  • Time spent: Night Hold

Nathdwara to Pushkar :

  • Distance from Nathdwara : 218Km
  • Time taken : 4 hr approx.
  • Time spent: 1 hr

Nathdwara Temple

Nathdwara falls first and since it will be already evening by the time you start from Udaipur, you can plan to stay back at Nathdwara. You can spot for a Dharamshala or hotel near the temple. To warn you before, this temple attracts crowd like crazy. I have never seen in my life people in thousands get up at 5 in morning just to catch a glimpse of God who only come out for like 5 minutes max. It is  an amazing experience.

Sri Nath Ji

You can checkout the official website of Sri Nathdwara for darshan timings.

We took the path to Bikaner to visit my aunt’s village in Akasar which is near Bikaner and then to Jaipur from there. However you can start for Jaipur straight after you have visited Pushakr. Route to Bikaner and Jaipur breaks from Ajmer. We will tell you at the end how to go next.

Pushkar :

One of the oldest city of the world and the only place where you can find the temple of Lord Brahma, the temple has a big lake full of water and many people come here to take a dip.

Pushkar City

There are lot of pandits around here and we would suggest to stay away from them as they seek more of money than anything else. Here is the official website of Pushkar for more details.

Brahma Temple

It will take you around one hour here and by this time you will be hungry.Puskar is pretty close to Ajmer and from here Jaipur is like 3 hours and it will be night by the time you reach there so better have some good food and we have the right recommendation from you : Lotus Restraunt and Tilpatti Palace which is in the Bewar Bypass.

Lotus Restraunt

The food was not only amazing but was good in quantity also. The place is airy and kids have lot of options to play around. This is like getting a five star hotel treatment in the middle of desert.

Once you take lunch here, grab some bottle of water and snacks from here and start for Jaipur where you have another 2 days and big forts to catch up with. Below is a glimpse of  Ajmer City.
