Let’s visit Ajmer Sharif surrounded by mountains.
The city of Muslim Sharif Tirtha Azam is not today. Surrounded by mountains, the city is shaped like a green oasis in a Romanian environment at a height of 48 feet. The combination of religion, history and architecture has taken place here. Such is the meeting place and holy land of Azam with the combination of all religions. It is said that 7 times Azam’s philosophy is the same as 1 time Mecca philosophy.
The city of Azam was built by Ajay Pal Chauhan in the 7th century. According to some, the city has been named after Azam. Some people say that Azam got its name from Ajay Meru mountain. The name of the former Ajayameru fort is now Taragarh fort. In 1193, Mohammad Ghori of Ghazni defeated Prithviraj Chauhan and captured Azam. From then on the struggle for power began.
Rana Kumbh became the king of Ajmer for some time after Taimur Long invaded India in 1396 AD and carried on a roller coaster of looting, killings and floods. But from 1480 to 1531 the Malwar sultans of Azam occupied it. He also built a fort at Azam in 1556. However, he himself came here in 1561 and displayed his fame through various forts, mosques and architectural works. All those architectural monuments still attract tourists today.
Akbar’s guru Khwaja Mainuddin Chisti came to India with Muhammad Ghori in 1192 AD. On his way from Mecca to Medina, he received instructions from God that he should preach the greatness of Islam in India. He then came to India. He started preaching Islam in different places in Ajmer. He died in 1236 AD at the age of 94 in Ajmer. This is where he is buried. This is Ajmer Sharif.
To go to Ajmer, first you have to go to Kolkata. Trains to Ajmer are available directly from the city’s Sealdah station. Notable among these is the Ananya Express. This train will take about 34 hours. You can also take the Ajmer Super Fast Express from Sealdah station, which will take 28 hours and 40 minutes. Rent AC three-tier Rs 2800, leaves at 11:05 pm. In some cases it may take longer. After landing the train at Ajmer railway station, it will cost Rs 30 by auto rickshaw and Rs 20 by rickshaw to reach Mazar road. You can also rent a private car from Jaipur. It will take 2 hours.
Staying in a hotel can be a bit of a hassle. Because if you are a foreigner, you have to fill an online form as per the instructions of the government’s intelligence agency. If this method does not exist in any hotel then foreigners will not want to keep these hotel authorities. If you go straight out of Mazar Road and take a few steps to the left at the very end, you will see many hotels including Regal. When Bangladeshis come to Ajmer, they will get two types of rooms at affordable and high prices. AC suite rooms will also be available starting from Rs 1500 to Rs 4500.
