History of Ajmer

History of Ajmer

The history of Ajmer began when Raja Ajai Pal Chauhan established his capital in this part of Rajasthan. Known as Ajaimeru in the past Raja Ajai Pal's bastion was rechristened as Ajmer in the later years.

Raja Ajai Pal constructed the imposing Taragarh Fort atop a sandstone hillock that represented the regal might of the great Chauhan rulers. The history of Ajmer took an interesting turn during the rule of Raja Ajaideva II; that is when Ajmer became an important center of politics and a flourishing city.

According to the Acheleshwar stone inscription (1320 A.D.) and the Hansi Inscription (1167 A.D.) the history of Chauhans can be traced back to the lunar dynasty though several other records state that the Chauhans are Suryavanshi's. So it is not really clear whether they belong to the lunar or the solar dynasties.

The history of Ajmer sparkles with chivalrous exploits of the great Prithvi Raj Chauhan who reigned supreme in this part of Rajasthan for more than 13 years. He learnt a lot from his mother Kapuridevi, who was an able stateswoman.

Hear tales of valor and romance sung with passion by local bards on your tours to Ajmer with Indian Horizons. Listen to melodious lyrics that remind you of the history of Prithvi Raj Chauhan's romance with Sanyukta, the daughter of his arch rival, Raja Jaichand of Kannauj.

The History of Ajmer is the history of the great and pious messenger of Allah, Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti, who lived and preached goodness and faith in Ajmer. Even today people come from far and wide to pay their respects to the great soul who worked for the upliftment of the poor.

Mughal Emperor Akbar annexed Ajmer in 1556 as a part of his Rajputana campaign. There are several mosques and artistic monuments that remind you of the glorious Mughal rule in this part of Rajasthan, India.
