Ajmer Sharif is  the sacred shrine of the great Sufi Saint Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer, Rajasthan, India.

Dargah Shariff of Hazrat Khwaja Muinuddin Chishti is an ornament to the city of Ajmer. It is one of the holiest places of worship in India not only for the Muslims but also for the people of other faiths who hold the saint in very high esteem and reverence.The Sufi saint, as a living spirit of peace and harmony, enjoys universal respect and devotion ever since he set his holy feet on the soil of India.

The saint has  been  a great spiritual redeemers of human sufferings. To the faithful and afflicted souls invoking his blessings, he has ever been a never-failing source of moral strength and spiritual enlightenment. Apart from the common people, even the mighty kings of India, both Hindus and Muslims, have paid submissive homage to the great saint and have sought his miraculous blessings to solve their problems and sufferings.

The Dargah lies at the foothills of the northern extremity of Taragarh hill. Its main attraction is the mausoleum containing the tomb of the saint which is the sanctum of the Dargah.

The Dargah includes many other attractive buildings, tombs, courtyards and Daalaans, some of which are exquisite specimens of the Moghul architecture and were erected during the Moghul period in India. Akbar was the first Moghul Emperor to visit the Dargah on foot when Ajmer came under his possession.
