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.

"Average destination place to see" new review

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
I visited Ajmer with my friend. We reserved seats in Jaipur Roadways in AC bus. Bus is good looking and having comfortable seats. But great rush in Jaipur city. After 2. 30 hrs, we reached Ajmer bus stand.

Here we took a taxi from bus stand to Dargah bazaar. Because taxi is not going near to Dargah. After drop from taxi we were going to Dargah. Big rush there. We went inside dargah. We prayed to the great Sufi Saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti. This place comes after Makka-Madina. Second Place in world.

We feel very energetic or cool place for mind and heart. We sat there for a long time.

We visited dargah and came to know about its history and different part of it. After visit, we took prasad from Khwaja Sahab.

Prayed to Khwaja Sahab to give again change to visit there.

After that we visited the bazaar and took new things to eat which is known as "Shoan Halwa". It's very different and tasty to eat.

After this we went to "Dhai din ka Jhonpra".

It was very easy to reach there. Can take taxi from bus stand or railway station. And also can going to railway station. From railway station distance is near to 1 km by walk.

But problem is also there equal to all India as the same. There were more beggars. And place of market is very congested. Animals were also there. Outside dargah, some places are very dirty.

But overall, this is the best place in the world which represents India in one place. All cast people live there. It's a heart of not only Rajasthan, not only India, it's the heart of whole world.

"An heritage city" new review

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Ajmer is a heritage city. Definitely it's main attractions are Ajmer Sharif Dargah and Ana Sagar Lake. But if you are looking beyond this, go to the Pushkar which is just 15 km away from the Ajmer on the other side of the Aravali mountains. Go to the Pushkar lake and hang around there for sometime. There are a lot of local attractions also in Pushkar.

Beautiful place surrounded by Aravali. Ana sagar is breathtaking and refreshing. The dargah has divine feeling. Come here at the time of ramzan, you will see thousands of devotees praying together and eating together at the evening. Visit and feel blessed.

Ajmer is the city where the pious Dargah of Khwaja Garib Nawaz is located. I found peace of soul there by faith in them. A religious sentiments flow over this place where people from all religions took part. Just 7 hrs. Journey from India capital, is worth to see.

Ajmer Shariff is known for many years amongst various religions and many people of different religions visit it. Just next to it a place naming Sagar Hotel is there for your relaxation. This place is very lucky for me I visit here 2-3 times in a year because the feeling I get by visitng this place is just unforgettable and remarkable.

"Small City, that needs to be developed"

  • 5.0/7
  • Posted 3 months ago
Ajmer is a Small City in Rajasthan which needs to be developed further. It has few hotels & restaurants and there is not much to do at this place. It is most famous for the Dargah Sharif, which houses the Tomb of Khwaja Syed Moinuddin Hasan Chishty, also known as Gharib Nawaz. This is where we were headed to. It is a famous place that attracts Devotees from various parts of the world who throng to the Dargah all day long. The town of Pushkar is nearby, which is famous for its Camel Fair, the Pushkar Lake & the only Brahma Temple in the World. In Ajmer, we stayed at the RTDC Khadim Hotel at Civil Lines, but it is not a good hotel to stay at, as it is very badly maintained.
