Welcome to Ajmer

Ajmer founded by Ajai Pal Chauhan, the city of Ajmer derives its name from Ajaimeru. A stronghold of the Chauhan clan until 1193 AD, Ajmer fell under the Mughal rule when Mohammed Ghouri took over the city from Prithviraj Chauhan. Since then Ajmer became the seat of many dynasties, which came and left leaving indelible marks of their culture and traditions on the history of the city, converting it into an amalgam of various cultures and a mixture of Hinduism and Islam. Later, Ajmer fell under British occupation and remained a focal point from which British chief commissioner for Rajputana kept a watch on all the Rajput kingdoms. And finally, it merged with India at the time of its independence from British rule.
