Ajmer indeed is a green oasis with an interesting past. The city was named after its founder, Raja Ajai Pal Chauhan, who founded Ajmer in the 7th century. Since then, Chauhans reigned over Ajmertill Prithviraj Chauhan lost the city to Mohammed Ghauri. Nonetheless, the culture and traditions of the city were strongly influenced by its rulers and one can see the indelible imprint of various cultures on the city. Just like old days,Ajmercontinues to be a popular pilgrimage centre for both Hindus and Muslims. Dargah Sharief, the tomb of the Sufi saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, is equally revered by both the communities and Urs fair attracts thousands and lakhs of pilgrims every year.
At the time of the Urs, a busy bazaar springs up at the foot of the dargah. Flowers, embroidered prayer rugs, prayer caps and decorative chadars are among the many things to be found in the bazaar, apart from the usual souvenirs which make their way to fairs such as this.
This season you can pay a visit to Ajmer for Urs Fair from June03 to 09, 2012 at Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti Dargah Sharif.
