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.

"A good place for a day or two days trip" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
If you have dream expectation about Ajmer & Jaipur then wake up. Plan only 2 days trip to this city. Everyone here wanted to make money from hotel to auto or guide to retail shop. And about safety here its zero security. You can not feel secure here if your with family. Hopeless place. But historically good place for a day or two days trip.

"An excellent place" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
In India I visited many place, all places were good but if you want to see real culture of Indian secularism you must also visit Ajmer once. If you visit India you see the secularism from station, from this you can see all the excellent faith in god. So I request you to visit this place.

"Fantastic trip" new review

  • 7/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
I enjoyed full stay for two days at Ajmer. I have been there with my family of five members. The purpose of visit is religious, for ziyarat at Khawaja Gharib Nawaz Dargah but beside this also visit Taragarh Fort and Anna Sagar lake and both are must visit places. I resided at Hotel Jannat, very near to Dargah Sharif, have good food and ambience. I definitely recommended this hotel.

"Beautiful place for worship" new review

  • 5/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Ajmer is the part of Rajasthan which is very beautiful place for worship and for spending time as well. As we know that Dargah Of Moinuddin Chisti is very famous and many people come there to worship and makes a wish for himself. So everyone should go Ajmer. As I experienced Ajmer is so auspicious so serene and so pure that makes me feel better.

"A beautiful place" new review

  • 6/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
Ajmer is a beautiful place I had been there for visiting garib nawaz dargah and Pushkar but more than that I also visited soniji ki nasiya and daulat Bagh. The dargah is a very beautiful and nice place to visit once in a lifetime experience and also the citizens were very helpful.

"Pleasant experience"

  • 6/7
  • Posted 1 month ago
Its good. But the trip was a bit costlier due to transportation. But there is no other choice. There are many forts in and around to see. Jaipur is nearby so one can plan to visit Jaipur along with this. Pushkar is also a worth visiting palace for Lord Brahma Temple. You can get good rajasthani cuisines and culture over there with handicrafts. You can plan for a camel ride or desert safari as well.

"A crowdy and busy place"

  • 4.5/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
The city is very crowded and busy. Everyone quotes a higher price for every commodity or service. So bargain quite a lot with the vendors and autowallahs unless you want to get thugged every time you buy something or take a ride.

Dargah Sharif, Adhai Din ka Jhonpra, Ana Sagar Lake and Soni Ji Ki Nasiya are the most famous places here in Ajmer. Dargah Sharif is very crowded. Dhai Din ka Jhonpra is peaceful in comparison. Ana Sagar lake is also very calm and serene where you can feed the fishes. Soni Ji ki Nasiya is famous for it's golden artwork and a model of the whole universe according to the Jain Mythology. Each and every section of it is very beautiful, interesting and appealing.

A few kilometers away from here is Pushkar, which is also very famous for the Brahma Temple. You can get a bus to Pushkar from Ajmer Bus Stand which is about 1.5 km from the Ajmer Junction.

The local market here in Ajmer is also very famous but you'll have to negotiate quite a lot.

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.
