Ajmer Tour


Ajmer is located in Rajasthan, in western India. It is more popular as a gateway to Pushkar and is connected by rail with Jaipur and Delhi. It is also an important pilgrimage site for muslims. The tomb of the Sufi saint Khawaja Moinuddin Chisti is here.
Ajmer has a very limited market place. Dargah bazaar is about a 15 minute walk from the railway station. Ana Sagar ("lake") has marble pavilions in a garden and is a wonderful place to sit, especially on hot days. It is about a 30 minute walk.
There are some wonderful back alleys. Just wander down small side streets from Dargah bazaar, and you'll see some wonderful old architecture and murals before you stumble back across a main street.
The Dargah is a major pilgrimage centre for Muslims (and some Hindus). Entry is free, but you should give the people watching your shoes a couple of rupees.

Ajmer has a women's market. Ask for the Mahila Mandi. It's closed on Tuesdays. In this market you can find odnis (traditional veils) which also make nice table covers and saris galore. Ornate lehengas (skirts worn with blouses) are also widely available. Hand tie-dyed turbans (safas) are 9-metre long bands of fabric with various uses and are usually sold wherever fabric for men's clothing is sold.
Ajmer is surrounded by the Aravalli Mountains. It is a pilgrimage centre for the shrine of the Sufi Saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti and is also the base for visiting Pushkar (11 km), an ancient Hindu pilgrimage city, famous for the temple of Brahma.
The city's Museum, was once the residence of Prince Salīm, the son of the Emperor Akbar, and presently houses a collection of Mughal and Rajput armour and sculpture. This is a magnificent example of Mughal architecture, construction of which had been commissioned by Akbar.
