Ajmer Fort Travel to Ajmer

Travel to Ajmer would take you to one of the most popular nearby attractions of Pushkar. Historically, the Ajmer region had considerable strategic importance. The city was founded by Raja Ajay Pal Chauhan in the 7th Century AD and continued to be a major center of the Chauhan power till 1193 AD when Mohammed Ghouri on one of his periodic forays from Afghanistan sacked it. Since then Ajmer became home to many dynasties, which came and left leaving behind indelible marks of their culture and traditions on the city's history, converting it to an amalgam of various cultures and a blend of Hinduism and Islam. The city was subsequently taken over by the Scindias and in 1818 it was handed over to the British, becoming one of the few places in Rajasthan controlled directly by the British rather than being part of a princely state. Ajmer is one of the most popular destinations for tourists when they travel to Rajasthan India.

On your Ajmer India travel package you can visit some popular places, which form the major tourist attractions in Ajmer.

Places to Visit

The Dargah, Travel to Ajmer, Travel to Rajasthan, India

The Dargah: Dargah is one of the most famous attractions of Ajmer. It is located at the foot of a barren hill in the old part of the town. This is India's most important pilgrimage center for people of all faiths. Popularly known as Dargah Sharif, it is the tomb of the Sufi saint Khwaja Moin-ud-din Chisti who came to Ajmer from Persia in 1192. Mughal Emperor Humayun completed the construction of the shrine and the Nizam of Hyderabad added its massive gate. There are two mosques in the courtyard, one built by Akbar and the other by Shah Jahan. The saint's tomb with a marble dome is in the center of the second courtyard and is surrounded by a silver platform. The shrine is next only to Mecca for the Muslims of south Asia. The Urs Mela commemorating the death anniversary of the saint is held here in the seventh month of the lunar calendar and attracts a large number of Muslims from India and abroad. A colorful fair that springs up during this time is the major attraction.The Dargah is a must visit on your travel to Rajasthan.

Boats are available for hire at the jetty. Adhai-din-ka-Jhonpra is another major attraction located beyond the Dargah; on the outskirts of the town are the ruins of this mosque.
