Situated at a distance of 135 kms from Jaipur, Ajmer is located on the slopes of the rugged Aravalli hills. Bestowed with unmatched natural beauty, Ajmer is flanked by majestic mountains on all sides. Ajmer reverberates with Sufi chants and attracts a large number of tourists from all over the world.Once the glorious kingdom of Chauhan dynasty, Ajmer was founded in 1193 AD by Ajay Pal Chauhan.
