Ajmer Sightseeing Tour

 

South west of Jaipur, Ajmer is an oasis wrapped in the green hills. Ajmer, the land of composite cultures, is a city in Ajmer District in India's Rajasthan state. The city was founded by Raja Ajay Pal Chauhan in the 7th Century A.D. He constructed a hill fort "Ajaimeur" meaning the invincible hill in the local language. Ajmer continued to be a major centre of the Chauhan power till 1193 A.D when Prithviraj Chauhan lost it to Mohammed Ghauri. Since then, Ajmer became home to many dynasties, which came and left leaving behind indelible marks of their culture and traditions on the city’s history, converting it to an amalgam of various cultures and blend of Hinduism and Islam. The city gives its name to a district, and also to a former province of British India called Ajmer-Merwara, which, after India's independence, became the state of Ajmer until November 1, 1956, when it was merged into Rajasthan state. Its population was approximately 500,000 in 2001.
