Located in the state of Rajasthan, Ajmer is one of the most important pilgrim sites in India. The place epitomizes the Hindu Rajput chivalry especially Prithviraj Chauhan and the Sufi Culture. Before the invasion of Mohammad Ghori, Ajmer was under the rule of Chauhan Rajputs until Muhammad Ghori defeated him in the year 1193 AD. It later became a part of the Delhi Sultanate. The holy significance of Ajmer is due to the presence of Khwaja Shariff, the tomb of famous Sufi saint ‘Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti’. Even centuries after the death of ‘Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti’, the inspirational teachings of the saint still resonate in the environment of Ajmer.
