Alluring Attractions of Ajmer

Dargah Sharif

Dargah Sharif refers to the tomb of the Sufi Saint, Moin-ud-din Chishti, affectionately called Gareeb Nawaaz or the patron of the poor. He arrived in Ajmer in 1192, worked for the poor & down-trodden, and made Ajmer his final resting place in 1236. His preachings focussed on service to mankind and are thus venerated beyond the lines of religion & castes. His tomb, visited by emperors like Akbar & Khilji and colonials like Queen Mary & Lord Curzon, is a major pilgrimage for people from all walks of life. This marble shrine with silver doors & delicate arches is a spiritual retreat where the fragrance of flowers & Sufi renditions create a magical ambiance.

Ana-Sagar Lake

This beautiful lake, ringed by the Aravallis, is a much-visited hotspot of Ajmer. Quiet busy in the evenings, especially during weekends, Ana-Sagar is a great place for a boat ride, some delicious street food, or for a quiet soul-seeking experience.

Jain Temple, Ajmer

Locally called Soniji Ki Nasiyan, this magnificent Jain temple is dedicated to the first Jain Tirthankar. Its façade is built in red sandstone and embellished with intricate carvings & exquisite sculptures. The sanctum sanctorum, however, is adorned with gold, silver, and precious stones.

Adhai-Din Ka-Jhopra

This spectacular mosque that was once a Sanskrit school is a beautiful blend of Hindu and Islamic architecture. It is believed that Mohammad Ghauri invaded the school, plundered it, and turned it into a mosque. Its arched wall, supported by the pillars of the school, is a thing of beauty. It is believed that the structure was completed in two and a half days, thus the name- Adhai-din-ka Jhopra.

Taragarh Fort

A legacy of King Ajaypal Chauhan, the founder of Ajmer, this hilltop fort offers bird’s eye view of the entire city. This solid rectangular structure, with thick walls & battlements, resounds with the tales of bravery of the Chauhan rulers.

- Memorable Experience !

Caper Travel designed a three week tour to Rajasthan and Goa for four of us in a private car during March. The driver, guides and everyone associated with the organisation were professional, reliable and punctual! We had an amazing time, made even better because of the good accomodation choices and extra additions, such as elephant and camel ride.
Thank you so much Caper for giving us a truly memorable experience of your beautiful country!
