Tags : mosques
Dargah Shariff of Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti is indeed 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 the high esteem and reverence. As mentioned previously. The Khwaja Saheb, as a ‘living spirit’ of peace and harmony, enjoys universal respect and devotion ever since he set his holy feet on the soil of Hindustan .The Dargah lies at the foot 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. Among its other prominent attractions which catch the eye of a visitor immediately he enters the Dargah, are the two mighty Buland Darwaza. Akbar was the first Moghul Emperor to visit the Dargah on foot when Ajmer came under his possession. He built the Akbari Masjid in the Dargah in 1571 A.D. which is a spacious mosque (140x140) feet. Today, Ajmer is famous for the Dargah Sharif - the final resting place of the Sufi saint - Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti. It is the main attraction of Ajmer and is considered as the Mecca or Medina for the Muslims of South Asia.
