Ajmer Sharif Dargah: Welcoming every wailing prayer at the Dargah

An architectural marvel, Ajmer Sharif Dargah is a shrine built by Mughal emperor Humayun for Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti. It is believed that Moinuddin Chisti was the direct descendant of Muhammad, and it was per His request, Chisti visited India in 1192 and lived in Ajmer until he died in 1236 AD. Legend has it that when a person prays with a pure heart at the shrine, their wishes come true. While the place is known for its spiritual connection, the architecture is another exciting attraction that draws visitors to the place. Massive doors made of silver engraved with beautiful carvings, tomb carved from marble and gold plating, this Sufi shrine is open to the public seeking peace and serenity.

Sterling Atharva Jaipur arranges transportation to visit this tranquil destination. Open all year round, spend two and a half hours by road to reach the place. We recommend our guests to explore the grounds and unwind from the bustle of city life.
