Visit Meera Bai’s birthplace Merta to soak spiritual splendour

Merta, known as the birth place of Meera Bai, the famous saint, poetess and devotee of Lord Krishna, stands as a silent spectator of many historical and cultural upheavals since centuries.

Founded in circa 1488 AD by Rao Duda, the fourth son of Rao Jodha, the ruler of Jodhpur, this city makes for a great one-day-trip from Ajmer.

The best time to visit here is in winter from October to April.

Being the birthplace of Meera Bai, the poetess and devotee of Lord Krishna, this place is around 500-year-old and echoes with the tales of devotional queen, Meera Bai.

Tourists should visit the Meera Bai Temple, also known as the Charbhuja Temple which has impressive interiors with its walls and floors adorned with thousands of tiles and decorated with mirrors and gems. 

The elaborate paintings on the walls depict different Hindu deities. Meera Bai Smarak or Meera Bai Memorial, a large gate built in typical Rajput architecture using red sandstone, is yet another tourist stopover.

Further, a tiny museum ahead near the memorial offers an insight into Meera Bai’s life.

The Aurangzeb Mosque, a fine specimen of Mughal architecture, is yet another must-visit spot in the city. 

Merta, therefore, is a popular excursion while visiting Pushkar, which lies at a distance of 61 km.
