When I went to Ajmer, I saw one part of the town with a fort boundary, but this fort boundary was not in good shape. I had hired a registered guide, while touring the whole of Ajmer. He gave me a lot of authentic information. He told me that this fort once belonged to the famous rajput king Prithviraj Chauhan. The Pushkar and Ajmer shopping markets are good, especially for women. Women can pick up beautiful silver jewellery, jewellery with meenakari work, sarongs and strapless blouses. If you have your own vehicle, then moving around in Ajmer is easy, but if you donít have your own vehicle, then you can move around in government buses. Ajmer is a city which has a lot of historic significance, because of the dargah of Khawaja Moinuddin Chisti. I knew that the dargah is a one of the holiest places of worship for muslims as well as hindus in India. The feeling that you get while in the Dargah is inexplicable, as you can almost feel a divine presence there. My guide told me that muslim as well as hindu kings from the past paid homage to the tomb of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti. Kings like Akbar sought his blessings in the Dargah and most of the kings from the past took his guidance. The shopping around Ajmer is good, but most of the articles are pilgrim related, such as lockets. We can actually get real stones, which we can fix in our finger rings.
