The Dargah Sharif or the Ajmer Sharif is a Sufi shrine of the great Moinuddin Chisti, who is also known to be the spiritual mentor of Emperor Akbar and had blessed him with his sons. This shrine is popularly known as the Khwaja Garib Nawaz Dargah Sharif. This shrine is a very popular tourist place not only for the Muslims but for people of all religions mostly for its historical significance and its popularity. The shrine is located at Ajmer in Rajasthan, India.
The main gate of the shrine is known as the Nizam Gate which is followed by the Shahjahani Gate. This gate is said to have been made by Emperor Shah Jahan and thus the name. This gate is again followed by the Buland Darwaza. This is the place where the Urs flag is hoisted. It is to mark the beginning of the main festival here. The Urs Festival is celebrated on the 6th and 7th Rajab.
The architecture of the shrine is in a typical Islamic or the Mughaliya style. The shrine is full white in color and has a dome and minarets on the four sides of the dome.

Dargah Shariff, Ajmer Reviews
Though its a peaceful place from a long time and today also but beware of fraudulent and from khadims. Nice play to visit , very very peace you got ..go taragarh also from both the ways and u enjoy it. Other historical places also there. Enjoy rabdi also.
A place usually crowded but one can find peace for mind here.... very well decorated at the time of festivals .... people from distant areas reach ajmer to visit this place... badly crowded when its visited by any VIP or VVIP so prefered not to go over there at that time.... Vehicle entry is not allowed so one has to park the vehicle outside the lane for worship
Moinuddin Chishti (1141 - 1236) also known as Gharib Nawaz, . But from all the network of Chishti dargahs, the Ajmer dargah took on the special distinction of being the "mother" dargah of them all.
Nice place.. people from any religion can visit... Lots of people every year comes to find peace of mind...
The place where i have visited more and more time Hazarat Khawaja Moinuddin Chisty Sanjari Ajmeri( R A) Alias Khawaja Garib Nawaz The most peaceful place i have visited in my life people from all religions come there and get peace of mind
