Ajmer Overview

History of Ajmer

Ajmer, formerly known as Ajmere or Ajaymeru is the city in Ajmer district of Rajasthan. The city was founded by the rulers of the Chauhan dynasty who ruled it for several decades, with Prithviraj Chauhan being one of its most illustrious rulers. At a distance of 135 km from the capital city of Jaipur, Ajmer is surrounded by the Aravalli range and is located at the slopes of the Taragarh hill. The city is guarded by the mammoth Taragarh Fort which is one of the country's oldest hill forts, and is at the summit of the Taragarh hill providing a breathtaking view of the city below.

People and Culture of Ajmer

Ajmer is famous for the Dargah Sharif of the great Sufi Saint Khwaja Muinuddin Chishti. Located at the foot of the Taragarh hill, the site is visited by thousands of devotees from all religions and sects who come here to offer their prayers. Especially during the festival of Urs, believers from all around the globe throng the holy site with the hope of getting their wishes fulfilled by offering prayers to the Saint. The Anasagar is a beautiful artificial lake located at the north of the city. The Bardani pavilions which surround the lake and the adjoining parks add to the beauty of the location and are popular for outings and picnics. The Ajmer Museum, which was once the residences of the Mughal Emperor Akbar, has a range of unique sculptures and armour of the Mughal and the Rajput dynasties preserved here for visitors to see.

Things To Do in Ajmer

The city has several other attractions like Adhai Din Ka Jhonpra, which is the remains of an old mosque and is a unique example of Indo-Islamic architecture, the Nasiyan (Red) Temple which is a well known Jain temple, the Nimbark Peeth, Nareli Jain temple, among many others. The city of Ajmer has been the hot seat for culture and education from ages. The British established the prestigious Mayo College, an institute set up exclusively for the erstwhile Indian nobility, which is now considered to be one of the best schools in the country. Ajmer is also the gateway to the holy city of Pushkar, which is just 11 km away from here. Pushkar is famous for the Lord Brahma temple and the sacred Pushkar Lake, and the town has become a favourite spot for domestic and international tourists.
