When visiting Jaipur, Sterling Atharva recommends spending a day driving to Ajmer to visit Ajmer Sharif Dargah. Built by the Mughal emperor Humayun for Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti, the Sufi shrine is popular for its architecture. Open to the public year-round, the shrine also has several mosques built by Akbar and Shah Jahan. The Dargah is the perfect place to connect with your inner self to find peace and calm.
