Places to See in Ajmer :

 

The Dargah of Khawaja Saheb  : The Dargah of Khawaja Saheb or Khawaja Sharif is at the foot of a barren hill. The shrine is next only to Mecca and Medina for the Muslims of South Asia. It is said that Akbar used to make a pilgrimage to the Dargah from Agra once a year. The saint's tomb with a splendid marble dome is in the center of the second courtyard, which is surrounded by a silver platform. There is another mosque in the courtyard built by Shahjahan, the most marvelous of all the sanctums within the sanctuary of the Dargah.

 

Adhai-din-ka-jhonpra   : Adhai-din-ka-jhonpra is a remarkable structure, a masterpiece of Indo-Islamic architecture located on the outskirts, of the city, just beyond the Dargah. As the legend goes, its construction took two and a half days (Adhai-Din) to complete. It was originally a Sanskrit college, built within a temple. In 1193 A.D. Mohhamed Ghauri conquered Ajmer and converted the building into a mosque by adding a seven arched wall in front of the pillared hall in just two-and-half days (adhai-din) and hence the name.

 

Nasiyan Temple  : Ajmer also has a Jain Temple, Nasiyan Temple in red color built in 1865. The wooden gilt in the double storeyed hall exhibits images from the Jain mythology, describing the ancient Jain concepts.

 

Lakes in Ajmer : Ajmer is blessed with lakes - Ana Sagar Lake, built between 1135-1150 AD by damming the river Luni. This artificial lake is bounded by hills and on its bank is a beautiful park - the Dault Bagh, making this place one fine spot for strolling in the morning and evening. Foy Sagar is just 5 kms from the town and 3 kms further up the valley from Ana Sagar Lake.

 

Forts in Ajmer  : Built during a famine relief programme it is named after the engineer responsible for its construction, the picturesque lake offers spectacular views form the hill. Ajmer has a fort, Taragarh Fort, a steep one and a half hour climb beyond the Adhai-din-ka-jhopra, which leads to the ruins of the Taragarh Fort, perched on a hill. One can have an excellent view of the city from here.
