Introduction of Ajmer

Ajmer is the 5th largest city in Rajasthan. It is a very old pilgrimage town which is located on the banks of the Ana Sagar Lake at an elevation of 486 meters above sea level and is surrounded by the Aravalli Mountains. The city boasts of a number of monuments dating back to the Mughal era. The city is also famous for its traditional handicrafts industry. Ajmer is 130 kms from Jaipur and covers a total area of around 55.76 square km. Historically; Ajmer has a considerable strategic importance and was sacked by Mohammed Ghori on one of his periodic attacks from Afghanistan. Afterwards it became a favorite residence of the powerful Mughal. Ajmer is the main center for Muslim pilgrims during the fast of Ramzaan and has some remarkable Muslim architecture. It houses the Dargah or tomb of the popular 13th century Sufi saint, Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chisti.

In Summers, the temperature is around 38.1º Celsius and in winters it is around 5.5º Celsius. Hindi, Rajasthani, Sindhi, Urdu and English are the common languages which are spoken here.

 
History of Ajmer

Ajmer was founded by a Rajput chieftain Raja Ajaipal Chauhan who also built first hill fort in India, the Tara Garh. As the fort was supposed to be invincible, it was named Ajai Meru (the Invincible Hill). Ajmer played a vital role in paving the way for British East India Company in India. The small town of Ajmer played an amazingly important role in India's history. It is located at the point where  the Thar Desert begins and the rocky Aravalli Hills end, this was initially the stronghold of the powerful Chauhan Dynasty of Rajputs, who founded India's first ever hill fort here in the 7th century.

Ajmer was brought under the control of Delhi Sultanate in 1193 when Ajaipal Chauhan was defeated by Mohammed Ghori. It was later returned to the local chieftains as a small tribute. In 1616 Jahangir met ambassador of King James, Sir Thomas Roe. That was the first meeting between any Mughal Emperor and representatives of Britain. In the 17th century Shah Jahan constructed marble pavilions around the Ana Sagar Lake. The Taragarh Fort was damaged badly during the Mughal war of succession between Aurangzeb and Dara Shikoh. The Scindia rulers of Gwalior took over Ajmer in the mid 18th century to be handed over to the British in 1818.
