Ajmer Sharif  Tour

Ajmer was founded by Ajayadeva, an 11th-century Rajput ruler. It was annexed shortly afterwards by the Delhi Sultanate in 1193, but was returned to the local rulers upon payment of tribute. Ajmer became a part of the mighty Mughal Empire during the medieval period, and was then an important military center. Military campaigns against local Rajput rulers were initiated from Ajmer.

The Sufi saint Khwaja Moin-ud-din Chishti, the patron saint of Ajmer, arrived here from Persia at the end of the 12th century. Born in Asfahan in 1135 he lost his father at a young age. As time passed, he came in touch with a mystic, Hazrat Ibrahim Qandoozi, who left his young mind with an impression that was never to be erased. Soon after, he recognized a higher calling and left for Khorasan.Chishti traveled far and wide and during his search, met spiritual guide Hazrat Khwaja Usman Harooni, who accepted him as a mureed (spiritual disciple) and with whom he met mystics and sought the Truth. In 1186 he was appointed successor by his spiritual guide and a year later, after his visit to Medina, ensued on his journey to Ajmer.


  


The revered Sufi saint arrived in Ajmer in 1192 as an ambassador of peace and humanism. Popularly known as Gharib Nawaz (protector of the poor), he dedicated his entire life to the service of mankind. His simple life spanned almost a 100 years and he embraced death in solitude in 1236 while he had withdrawn to his cell for six days, asking not to be disturbed.The Dargah erected by Humayun also has mosques that were built by rulers like Shah Jahan, Jahangir and Akbar. Emperor Akbar made several pilgrimages to Ajmer on foot and also built the kos minars (brick pillars marking every two miles) along the road from Agra for pilgrims. He also built a fort here called Akbar’s Palace. The Emperor Shahjahan built marble pavilions around the Ana Sagar Lake in the 17th century. The Scindia rulers of Gwalior took over Ajmer, which was then taken over by the British in 1818. The British also founded the prestigious school, Mayo College, in Ajmer in 1875.

Ana Sagar Lake

The beauty of Ajmer is known to the travelers very well. The city is visited by thousands every year chiefly for the holy shrine of Dargah Sharif, Ajmer which has been the major crowd puller. But the other attractive proposition of the city that too has played an important role in the beautification of Ajmer is the famous Ana Sagar Lake, Ajmer. The lake has been an outstanding landmark of the city from the 11th century and has served to the cause of the city as well.
The Ana Sagar Lake was built by King Anaji during 1135-1150 AD. King Anaji was the grandfather of Prithvi Raj Chauhan and he built the landscape for the better cause of the society. Presently the lake acts as a major reason for increase in the popularity of Tours to Ajmer. The Ana Sagar Lake in Ajmer in India is probably the largest and most popular Lakes and Gardens in Ajmer.
The lake was built in the 12th century by putting up a dam across the Luni River and the lake was named after the then ruler of Ajmer Anaji Chauhana. The lake is surrounded by some of the marvelous piece of attractions of the city like the Daulat Bagh that was built by Shah Jahan and is built completely by marble stones. Surprisingly the lake dries up completely during the summers.

    


The Ana Sagar Lake is surrounded by many other attractions like the temple of Khobra Behroon which lies on the southern bank of the lake. The lake is an artificial creation that has been a lifeline for the people of Ajmer in the past. The lake still serves as a lifeline of beauty to the city to the locals and the visitors as well.
The best time to visit the Ana Sagar Lake, Ajmer is between the months of October to March when the climate remains cool and the water level up to the mark. The various nearby attractions of the lake are Adahi-Din-Ka Jhopra, Taragarh Fort, Nasiyan and Prithviraj Smarak.
Reaching the lake as easy as reaching the city which his brilliantly connected to the various parts of India through road, rail and airways.
