Tourist Attractions of Ajmer

Ajmer is known more as a religious centre than a Tourist Attractions site. It is a crowded town lying 130 km southwest Ajmer to Jaipur, amidst views of the Aravallis and the Ana Sagar Lake. The presence of Dargah-e-Sharif or the tomb of revered Sufi saint Khwaja Muin-ud-din Chishti, belonging to the 12th century, makes Ajmer Rajasthan an important Muslim pilgrimage centre of India. The Chishtiya order still prevails as the main Sufi order. Ramadan and Urs are the major festivals celebrated here, when devotees crowd the city to offer prayers in the Durgah and to be a part of the festivity.

History of Ajmer Rajasthan
The city of Ajmer played an important role in Indian history. Lying on a very significant trade route between Delhi and the port city of Gujarat, and protected by the Aravalli Hills, Ajmer has always been a fought over territory right from the times of the Turks. It was Raja Ajai Pal of the Chauhan dynasty, who founded the city in the 7th century as Ajaimeru or the 'Invincible Fort'. Chauhans had the city's control till Prithviraj Chauhan lost it to Mohammad Ghori. Later became a part of the Delhi Sultanate.

Delhi

After 1326, Ajmer Rajasthan saw battles between neighboring states to gain its control including Mewar (Udaipur), Marwar (Jaipur), Gujarat and Delhi. The pages of Indian History also saw Ajmer become an import residential city for the Mughal emperors. In 17th century, Ajmer served as a residential resort to emperor Shah Jahan and later Jahangir. After the fall of Mughal emprire, it fell into the hands of the Scindias who later surrendered it to the Britishers in 1818. One can find several testaments of the colonial empire here, including the Mao College, Ajmer Club and the Jubilee Clock Tower.

Ajmer Dargah of Khwaja Muin-ud-Din Chishti
Ajmer Sharif Dargah is the burial ground of revered Sufi Saint Khwaja Muin-ud-din Chishti who came to India from Persia in 1192 and died in Ajmer in 1236. He was recognized as the 'saint of the poor'. It is the most important pilgrimage site for the Muslims, who have a strong belief that wishes made at the Durgah come true.

Dargah of Khwaja Muin-ud-Din ChishtiThe tombed shrine took shape in the Mughal era and it is said that every year emperor Akbar used to Visit the Durgah from Agra. The entrance gate, known as the Nizam Gate, was built in 1915 by the Nizam of Hyderabad, Mir Osman Ali Khan. The second gate to the Mosque was built by Shah Jahan and is called Nakkarkhana because of the drums or Nakkharas attached above it. Buland Darwaza, or the third gate, was built in the 16th century and it directly opens up to the Durgah courtyard.

The main tomb of Khwaja is beautifully decorated with silver platforms and marble domes. Akbari Masjid, a green and white Shaded Mosque lies on the right of the Nizam Gate. It was built by emperor Akbar in 1517. Another mosque in white marble, a creation of Shah Jahan, has Persian inscriptions on its walls. The best time to Visit Ajmer the shrine is during the annual Urs festival, when the holy place is lavishly decorated with twinkling lights and flower garlands.

Adhai-Din-Ka-Jhonpra & Taragarh
The reason behind the weird name 'Adhai Din Ka Jhopra' is a bit controversial, since some say its because it took two and a half days to build the mosque, while others believe that the name signifies a festival that took place for two and a half days. The building was erected in 1153, and it first served as a Sanskrti College, but later when Ajmer came under the control of Mohommad Ghori, it was converted into a mosque.

Delhi

The architecture of the Mosque, its carved ceilings and columns, hint to a blend of both Hindu and Islamic styles. Though the arches and its rectangular panels which are common to Arabian structures, the core of the mosque largely resembles a Hindu or a Jain temple structure.

About 3 km form the mosque lies the Taragarh Fort, built by Ajai Pal Chauhan, offers splendorous views of the cityscapes from the hilltop. The fort witnesses a lot of battles and clashes during the times of the Mughals.

Nasiyan (Red) Temple
