Ajmer Tourism Guide

The city of Ajmer, south west of Jaipur, is situated in the heart of Rajasthan. It is a green oasis wrapped in the barren hills has been a witness to an interesting past. South west of Jaipur, Ajmer is an oasis wrapped in the green hills. The city was founded by Raja Ajay Pal Chauhan in the 7th Century A.D. and continued to be a major centre of the Chauhan power till 1193 A.D. when Prithviraj Chauhan lost it to Mohammed Ghauri. Since then, Ajmer became home to many dynasties and thereafter it became a part of the sultanate of Delhi. Ajmer was also favourite residence for the great Mughals. Today, Ajmer is a popular pilgrimage centre for the Hindus as well as Muslims. This city is an amalgam of various cultures and a blend of Hinduism & Islam. Especially famous for the Dargah Sharif-tomb of the Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti, which is equally venerated by the Hindus and Muslims.

It is a centre of culture and education, the British chose Ajmer for its prestigious Mayo College, a prestigious school opened in 1875 exclusively for the Indian nobility but today it is to all those who can afford the fees.

Ajmer is also important for visiting for Pushkar(11km), the abode of Lord Brahma, lying to its west and a picturesque lake. The Pushkar Lake is a holy spot for Hindus. During the month of Kartik(oct./Nov.),a large numbers of devotes come here to take a holy dip in this lake.

One of the first contacts between the Mughals and the British took place in Ajmer, when King Jahangir and Sir Thomas Roe met here in 1616. The ScIndias took over the city in 1818 and then handed it over to the British and it became one of the only parts of Rajasthan controlled directly by the East Indian Co.

The bus stand in Ajmer is located near the RTDC hotel Khadim. And the railway station is further north and most of the hotels are west of the stations.
