  • 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
