Ajmer of Rajasthan!! One of the sacred cities of Rajasthan that sets perfect example of unity of the country as it is the religious place of both Hindus and Muslims.It is so because it houses one religious place of Hindus named Pushkar and that of Muslims, it is Dargah of Sufi Saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti. Formerly, the city was addressed as “Ajmere” but nowadays Ajmer. Ajmer is very popular and fifth largest city of Rajasthan and not only this much but it is a fertile land enclosed with lush green hills. Truly speaking, it is very difficult to describe the features of the pious city in mere words!!
In the 7th century A.D., in 1100 A.D, Raja Ajay Pal Chauhan founded Ajmer.Chauhan rulers used to rule over the city for long period of time till 1193 A.D. Later on, during the ruling period of Prithvi Chauhan, the city went into the hands of Mohammad Gauri. Then, the interference of different dynasties got started in Ajmer like that of Mughals, Rajputs, Scindias and many others. Gradually, because of continuous Turkish attacks, Ajmer got lost to British rulers. But, during rule of various dynasties, Ajmer got highly developed.
