Adhai–Din–Ka Jhonpra Ajmer
The City of Ajmer is the closest railhead to Pushkar, well connected to all major cities Ajmer has daily train services from both Delhi and Jaipur. The word “ Adai Din-Ka-Jhonpra” in Hindi literally translates to “ Two-and-Half-Days –Hut” contrary to what is assumed the “ Mosque of Adai Din-Ka-Jhonpra” was not built in two and a half days but took almost 15 years to build. Built primarily out of material recycled and salvaged from the Sanskrit University that stood there before it was plundered and destroyed by the armies of Gohri. The name of the mosque was given much later by a group of Fakirs who stayed in the mosque for two and a half days on their way to the Urs of Panja Sahib.
