Ajmer had been the capital of the Chouhan Empire in India. Ajmer, at a distance of 132 km from Jaipur and 444 km from Delhi, is an ancient place, known in olden days as Ajay Meru. The city was founded by Ajaypal Chauhan in the 7th century. The city, dominated by Taragarh fortress, was raided by Mahmud Ghazni in 1024 and again by Muhammad Ghori in 1193.

Then came Timur in 1398, perpetrating massacre and plunder. Ajmer changed hands till it came under the Rathor rulers of Marwar. In 1556 Akbar annexed it. While Ajmer is holy to the Muslims ("Ajmer Sharif"), the nearby Pushkar is of great sanctity to the Hindus.

It was an important city during the medieval period and it was a center of Sufi saints in India. Later the British made this their center of administration to take care of the affairs of Rajasthan. Located in the center, we now know Ajmer for Dargah (the holy site) of Sufi Khwaja Muinuddin Chishti. Located at the distance of 135 kms from Jaipur, Ajmer is placed on the slopes of rugged Aravalli hills. Granted with unsurpassed natural beauty, Ajmer is located amidst majestic mountains on all sides. Ajmer reverberates with Sufi songs and attracts a large number of tourists from all over the world.
