Day 2 : Delhi
Now these are 3-wheel cycles with a sofa seat at the back. The Rickshawalla (Rickshaw driver) sits on a small cushion in the front and two passengers on the sofa seat behind. This is a remarkable way to explore and picture the hustle and bustle as well as the colour of the narrow winding streets bursting with people and pavement shops selling wares of all description - including a laughing set of dentures. The ride would be accompanied by peals of laughter both from the passengers as well as the onlookers.
Old Delhi is one of the best places to observe the great colossal of cultural and social convergence of old and new. This itinerary is packed with visits to the Jamma Mosque (1650) and a drive through the fabled area of Chandni Chowk (aptly translates to Moonlight Square) where the throngs of shoppers and vendors meet in the oldest area of Delhi. Visit the Raj Ghat and nearby ghats where the founder of the nation, Mahatma Gandhi and thereafter Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi were cremated.
The highlight of this tour would be a ride on cycle rickshaws. Now these are 3-wheel cycles with a sofa seat at the back.

Day 3 : Delhi/Udaipur (6E 2554 - 1310 / 1425 Hrs.)
Udaipur is a cool oasis in the dry heart of Rajasthan. It is probably the most romantic city in a state where every city has some romantic or exotic tale to tell. The huge city palace towering over the Lake Pichola is the largest palace complex in Rajasthan. Though it is a conglomeration of buildings built by successive rulers, it manages to retain a surprising uniformity of design and affords the very fine view of the lake and the city from the upper terraces. The Jagadish temple next to the city palace enshrines a black stone image of Lord Vishnu and his vehicle- a mighty bird called garuda - in a brass image. The temple is a very fine example of Indo-Aryan Art.
The banks of Lake Pichola provides an interesting glimpse of the daily bathing and the laundry that takes place here. Looking across the lake, with the city and its great palace rising up behind the island palace, is a scene of rare beauty.The island palace on the Lake called Jagmandir Palace is quite fascinating. The Palace provided inspirations and ideas to the builder of the Taj Mahal.

Day 4 : Udaipur/Pushkar
A very small town with one major road (actually, lane). The entire town spreads around the Brahma Temple and the Lake. This is the only Brahma (Creator) temple in the world. You will get to feel and hear the different sounds coming from near and far - witness and experience the sound of bells, drums, chants, and, the smell of freshly lit incense sticks. A truly uplifting experience.
amazingly fascinating religious town
According to legend, the origin of Pushkar dates back to the time when Lord Brahma was on his way in search of a tranquil land to perform a ‘Yagna’. A lotus fell from the hand of the Lord into this valley. A lake sprang up on this spot and was dedicated to him. A Brahma temple located here, which is supposed to be the only temple dedicated to this God is a popular place of pilgrimage. It would be fascinating to walk through the maze of narrow lanes and streets.
Morning, we drive to the temple town of Pushkar
