Reaching many places of interest in AC comfort and speed they shouldn't be overlooked in your travel Plans.
Today sees a new Garib Rath 2993/2934 train flagged off from Bandra Terminus on It's way to Jaipur, this handy train will run through many places of interest for the tourist Like Abu Road, Falna (for Rankpur and Kumbhalgarh) Ajmer, Jaipur and also offers a convenient jumping off point for travellers to Gujarat in Ahmadabad.
