Ajmer/Pushkar Travel Destinations
To the South west part of Jaipur, Ajmer is said to be one of the oasis wrapped into lush green hills. This city was discovered in 7th Century A.D by Raja Ajay Pal Chauhan. It also continued to be the mostimportant centre of the Chauhan power until 1193 A.D. After the death of Prithviraj Chauhan Ajmer became a home to many dynasties.
This place has become a popular pilgrim place not just for the Hindus but also for the Muslims. The very famous place here is the Dargah Sharif-tomb which belongs to the Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti. This is the one which is respected by both the Hindus and the Muslims. This is one great centre that depicts the culture as well as the
education. The British too chose this place because of its Mayo College which was built exclusively for the Indian nobility.
