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.

"Perfect to visit to have a great experience during holidays" new review

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted 6 days ago
To change in life, they should travel and know the difference before they had with the life and after the journey who they are so I think journey makes a lot of changes and brings a new variation. Darga very famous in Ajmer so I visited with family. While coming to the food, we had with us which we bought from home because the home food is the good food and we have ordered some food from IRCTC and they offered a nice food. Shopping from the various shop in Ajmer got a great experience. I refer everyone visit the place with entire family to have a great great experience so you will know the importance of life in Darga. I say to travel through train will gives you a great and safe because it is cheap when compare to bus or air plane and it is only way to get good views through journey and makes your entire family with in front of you.

"It was a nice place & served nice food" new review

  • 2.0/7
  • Posted 1 week ago
Railway Station was not clean. Dry atmosphere was during winter. Climate was like below 10 degree. I came from south India. So only one restaurant which we got south Indian food was near to Ajmer railway station called mango, but the charge was very costly. Not at all liked the place. The road going to Ajmeer darga was very dirty and I think the most dirty atmosphere was that road. Our stay was also very expensive compared to other places.

"Best of destination" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 weeks ago
Recently visited Ajmer for a friends wedding and also a week retreat. It's a beautiful place with a lot to do. Do visit the shrine of Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti at Ajmer Sharif. It's a really divine experience. Also visited the Brahma temple at Pushkar. The world only Brahma temple is at Pushkar. Also saw the Pushkar lake and the famous mela grounds. Pink Floyd cafe at Ajmer is also a must visit.

"A place where wishes can come true" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Ajmer is really a great place where ones wishes can really come true. Here I went 1 year ago in January and there I stayed for only two days, but I cannot Forget those two days. I went there with my family and stayed there in a hotel near Ajmer Sharif. We first went on the Taragarh hill which is really amazing on the top we can see the whole Ajmer. Every traveller should visit this place because of the beauty and varieties were available there. Travellers can visit Taragarh paharh or Anasagar.

"Solo Trip to Ajmer" new review

  • 4.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Ajmer as a whole is a religious place let it be mosque or temples. This was my first visit to Dargha or mosque. At the Dargha it's more like a business place for the people and not religious people will ask money for every thing tell that it will go to the trust and non of them look like the trust member. Every one are money minded inside and will try to loot till the core so be careful before giving any money.

"Best location to visit"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Ajmer center of Rajasthan famous for Khawja Garib Nawaz Dargah and For AnaSagar Lake. I like both places its good and feeling quite there. In dargah you see Muslim tradition. Where no matter who Hindu who Muslim. All religion came out there for complete their wish. Ajmer is also known for Pushkar city where one & only Bharma Mandir is established. When you bath in Pushakr lake you feel good there.
