Faith and history define Ajmer (Ajmere). The town’s closest association is with the Dargah Sharif, the final resting place of Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, whose disciples included the Mughal emperors. Devotees now visit here from all over the world. At the tomb chamber, the air is thick with the scent of roses, incense and the fervour of prayer. Outside, even in the lanes of the modest town, it’s possible to glimpse the past. It's time to seek some divine intervention and simultaneously plan an enjoyable, exciting vacation at Ajmer (Ajmere)!
Situated amidst the beautiful Aravali Range, Ajmer (Ajmere) is literally wrapped in the hills. The city is surrounded by the Ana Sagar Lake, a man-made lake built by Anaji Tomar. Prithviraj Chauhan, his grandson, ruled the city along with Delhi and was the last Hindu ruler to sit on the throne of Delhi. Regardless of the weather conditions, the famous pilgrimage center is flocked by visitors throughout the year. Home to the Sufi saint Khawaja Moinuddin Chisti's tomb, it is an important place of worship for Muslims as well as Hindus. This quaint Sufi town plays host to two major festivals--Urs and the International Sufi Festival. Both these events are a celebration of the life of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti. The evenings are filled with the soulful notes of Sufi music and mesmerising performances.  Apart from this, Ajmer (Ajmere) is also an important pilgrimage town for the Jain religion, and the golden Jain temple is a famous place. Ajmer is not only limited to being a sacred place, it has majestic lakes, historical monuments and grand Mughal mansions and no wonder, the city can be easily termed as the regal state. Even though Ajmer (Ajmere) is not a shopping destination, you can easily find interesting items like beautiful silver jewellery, wonderful artifacts and other stuff. Some other attractions are Nasiyan Jain Temple, Ana Sagar and Adhai-din-ka-Jhonpra.  The Adhai din ka Jhonpra was built as a Vaishnava Hindu temple which was later converted to a mosque by AlauddinKhilji in 1193. Mughal emperor Akbar also built a palace here which is locally known as Magazine and now houses a government museum.
