Founded by Rajah Ajai Pal Chauhan in the 7th century, Ajmer is a Muslim pilgrimage center on the shore of Ana Sagar. Till 1193 A.D., Ajmer used to be a major center of the Chauhan power when the rajput Ruler Prithviraj Chauhan lost it to Mohammed Ghauri.
The abode is also famous for the tomb of Khwaja Moin-ud-din Chisti, a medieval Sufi-Saint. Other monuments which stand as reminders of Ajmer's colonial past are the Edward Memorial hall, Ajmer club and Jubilee clock tower.
Ajmer is also famous for its Pushkar festival held in October/ November and is dedicated to Lord Brahma.
Historically, Ajmer always had great strategic importance and was sacked by Mahumud of Ghazni on one of his periodic forays from Afghanistan. Later it became a favorite residence of the great Moghula. One of the first contacts between the Moghula and the British occurred in Ajmer when Sir Thomas Roe met with Jahangir here in 1616. The city was subsequently taken by the Scindias and, in 1818, it was handed over to the British, becoming one of the few places in Rajasthan controlled directly by British rather than being part of a princely state.
Dargah of Khawaja Moin-Ud-Din- Chisti
This is the shrine of Khawaja Moin-ud-din-Chisti, a medieval sufi saint who came to India from Persia in 1192. Humayun completed the construction of the shrine and the gate was added by the Nizam of Hyderabad. The saint's tomb is in the center of the second court. The actual tomb is concealed in raised marble dome by a silver platform
People of AjmerAdhai Din Ka Jhopda
Initially it was a Sanskrit college that was destroyed by the Mohammad Ghauri and was converted into mosque in just 2 and half days and hence it was named after the situation. This is one of the very old mosque in India built in 1193 AD and is a great example of Indo- Muslim architecture.
Once the royal residence of Emperor Akbar, the museum houses a rich repository of the Mughal and Rajput Armour and exquisite sculptures.
