The Dargah Sharif is a sufi shrine of sufi saint, Moinuddin Chishti. It houses the grave of the saint Moinuddin Chishti, which also is the prime attraction and place of worship here. Moinuddin Chishti is undoubtedly one of the greatest and mightiest spiritual redeemer of man and his sufferings whose holy footsteps in Hindustan is still worshipped and payed respect to. A historic visit of Muhammad Bin Tughluq in 1332 to the Dargah Sharif made a benchmark for people across various religions and is followed by them time and again. Those in pain and agony, those in search of spirituality, those in search of peace and proceed for a pilgrimage trip to Ajmer and offer their prayers to the saint. It is believed that the saint washes away all pain and distress of the bereaved here in the dargah.

Some major attractions of Ajmer Dargah are:

  • the mausoleum (the sanctum sanctorum) bearing the tomb of the saint,
  • specimens of Mughal architecture like tombs, courtyards and other majestic buildings and
  • the colourful chadders threaded with gold and silver offered by kalanders from Mehrauli.
A few hours drive from Delhi lands one to this abode of peace.
