HolidayIQ Reviewer Traveler InMe adds, “We did a short camel ride within the campus. Even though this was my third camel ride I remained all tense during the rid. The museum updates one on the developmental and research aspects of the camel in the desert ecosystem. It is not a well-developed museum hence there is a scope for improvement to make it interesting. Ship of the Desert - Camel Well, the National Research Centre for Camel at village Jorbeer is one of the destinations one should not miss when travelling to Bikaner.Read Full Review

HolidayIQ Reviewer Rohith Sivashankar adds, “Pushkar town is around half an hour drive from Ajmer and is a known for the famous Brahma temple which one of the very few temples dedicated to Lord Brahma, one of the holy trinity of Hinduism. The lake in the centre of the town has many ghats much like Varanasi and is nearby the temple. There are 2 temples named Savitri Mata Mandir and Gayatri mandir both of whom are considered to be the wives of Brahma. One can go for camel rides in the nearby deserts at a cost of 400 rs per head. Due to a large number of foreigners visiting the place there are a lot of good hotels and restaurants around. Overall a good getaway place.” Read Full Review
