It's a remarkable blend of Rajput and Mughal architecture, with Mughal rulers' spectacular gardens complementing the grandeur of Ajmer's largest manmade lake.
Why to visit this place
The park provides a welcome break from the city's various structures and development projects. The exquisite 'Baradari,' or pavilions constructed by Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan, as well as other gorgeous trees, add to the Daulat Bagh gardens' grand backdrop. The Mughal kings built marble pavilions on the south-eastern parapet of the Baradari. They also include some lovely Ana Sagar Baradari niches, which are classic Mughal structures placed around water features.
The lake's boating amenities can be rented from the Daulat Bagh gardens on the east side. In the middle of the lake, there is an island that can only be reached by boat, which may be rented for a reasonable price. Families picnic at the Daulat Bagh gardens, which are packed with lovely green trees and huge open areas. Inside the garden, there are alleys and intersecting paths for people who want to wander around and take in the wonderful scenery.
Daulat Bagh is a large garden in the middle of the city of Ajmer. It lies next to Ajmer's famous artificial lake, the Ana Sagar Lake, which was created by Arno Raja, the famed warrior king Prithviraj Chauhan's grandfather. The lake was formed during a 15-year period, from 1135 to 1150 AD, by building a dam on the Luni River and was called after Arno Raja as a tribute to him. Mughal Emperor Jahangir established the Daulat Bagh Garden on the Ana Sagar Lake's shore.
You can take a bus from the railway station to Baradari / Pavilions, which is only about 2 kilometres away. The bus fare will be less than Rs ten. You can also hire an auto rickshaw (tuk tuk).
