Ajmer, formerly known as Ajmere or Ajaymeru is a 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.

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 residence 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.

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. 

The best time to visit Ajmer is during the winter season when the weather is pleasant and comfortable for exploring the city.

Ajmer and Ujjain tour was very exciting. People of Madhya Pradesh were very friendly. Dargah Sharif of ajmer is a must see. When you enter the Dargah you the peace of mind you get is beyond description. The serenity of Dargah you must experience. Hotel Embassy where we stayed is very good. Service of the hotel is very good.

"A city full of old monuments"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The Ajmer city is full of old monuments like mayo college, The dargah sarif, The prithviraj chauhan-the last Hindu kings palace and the anasagar lake. It is also near the old Pushkar city which is a religious place and the marble city Kishangarh. These are also good places to visit.

"My favourite place in Rajasthan!"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Ajmer is a very beautiful city. The main sightseeing points are the Chudi Bazaar, Dargah, Pushkar, Annasagar lake and Foy Sagar.

Its a quiet city which has a lot to offer. The scenic view from Pushkar(which is on top of a hill) is fabulous and should not be missed! The Chudi bazaar is also one of a kind as its a market which offers a variety of bangles as you would like to suit yourself.

As the city is soon to be a supercity, cabs such as Ola and Taxi for sure have also begun their services which make travelling hassle free. All in all, its a must visit city if you're in Rajasthan!

"Religious place covered with hills"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Reached Aajmer from Jaipur, it took around 2 and half hour by bus to reach there, first went to the hotel on naseerabad road, after taking rest we decided to visit the place, first of all went to the most heard famous place i. E DARGAH, ajmer is famous for this in all of the world. I found that place very peaceful, but when you cross the dargah road there you have to face many beggars and fakers kind of, they are kind off making you scared by selling there products. \

It was not cool at all but when you enter in dargah believe me you will get a extra ordinary peace in your mind. Later on we went to aanasagar, in the evening nothing can be best in Ajmer, you can have boating experience too and can taste junk food over there.

"Inspired from the peaceful trip"

  • 7/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Good feeling after visiting Dargah. Small shops where you can buy different souvenirs. Food is also good with good variety of sweets. Non veg mostly available but some also offer veg food.

You can also find a small Shanidev Mandir on route down. Road outside the Dargah could be more clean.

"Typical India"

  • 5/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
This city will let you feel what India is all about. From religious places to some mountains, Ajmer has it all.

You will see the worlds first Bramha temple with a kind in between the boundary of temple known as 'Pushkar'. You will actually feel the sanctity of the place after visiting.

Ajmer sharif dargah knows as the most prestigious place of Muslims in India is here too. From narrow lanes, when you will enter the dargah, you would feel like getting all the blessings from lord - Allah.

Must visit place!!
