Raja Ajay Pal Chauhan founded Ajmer and it used be a major center of the Chauhan power till 1193 A.D, when the ruler Prithviraj Chauhan lost it to Mohammed Ghauri.
Ajmer is situated in the green oasis wrapped in the barren hills. After Prithwiraj Chauhan, Ajmer witnessed dynasties, which came and left leaving behind indelible marks of their culture and traditions on the city's history, converting it to an amalgam of various cultures and blend of Hinduism and Islam.

Today, Ajmer is a significant pilgrimage destination for both Hindus and Muslims, famous for the Dargah Sharif-tomb of the Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti.

The Dargah:
The Dargah is the prime attractions of Ajmer. It is situated at the foothill of a barren hill with the splendid tomb of the Sufi saint Khawaja Moinuddin Chisti more popularly known as Khawaja Saheb or Khawaja Sharif. The shrine is next only to Mecca or Median for the Muslims of south Asia. Akbar used to make a pilgrimage to the Dargah from Agra once a year. The shrine attracts thousands of pilgrims during the Urs-commemorating the death anniversary of the Saint, held from the 1st to 6th day of the Islamic month of Rajab. It is one of India's most important pilgrimage centers for people from all faiths.

Other attractions include:

Shahjahan's Masque: In the corner of the inner court of the Dargah, is a magnificent building in white marble with a long (30.5m) and narrow court having low arcade and delicate carvings with trellis work. It is the most marvelous of all the sanctums within the sanctuary of the Dargah.

Adhai-din-ka-jhonpra: A remarkable structure, this is a masterpiece of Indo-Islamic architecture located on the outskirts, of the city, just beyond the Dargah. The legend goes that its construction took two and a half days (Adhai-Din) to complete.

Taragarh Fort: a steep one and a half hour climb beyond the Adhai-din-ka-jhopra leads to the ruins of the Taragarh Fort. The fort offers an excellent view of Ajmer city. The fort was the site of the military activity during the Mughal period, later used as a sanatorium by the British.
