Must Do

Ajmer  

Apart from visiting Jaipur's famous forts and taking a trip to the Ranthambore wildlife sanctuary, you could also head to Ajmer to visit the Khwaja Moinudddin Chisti dargah, believed by Muslims to be second only to Mecca in its holiness. Legend has it that Mughal emperor Akbar once walked barefoot to the dargah to pray, after which he was blessed with a son. It is one of the biggest tourist attractions in India, and only two hours from Jaipur. Many cricketers and Bollywood stars seek blessings at Ajmer. Shamsher Singh

Don't feed the monkeys at Amber Fort. Keep your distance, and make sure your children don't get too close either.
