Ajmer Attractions

Adhai-din-ka-jhonpra
It is a remarkable structure, a masterpiece of Indo-Islamic architecture located on the outskirts, of the city, just beyond the Dargah. As the legend goes, its construction took two and a half days (Adhai-Din) to complete. It was originally a Sanskrit college, built within a temple. In 1193 A.D. Mohhamed Ghauri conquered Ajmer and converted the building into a mosque by adding a seven arched wall in
front of the pillared hall in just two-and-half days (adhai-din) and hence the name.


Other Attractions in Ajmer

Ajmer also has a Jain Temple, Nasiyan Temple in red color built in 1865. The wooden gilt in the double storeyed hall exhibits images from the Jain mythology, describing the ancient Jain concepts. Ajmer is blessed with lakes - Ana Sagar Lake, built between 1135-1150 AD by damming the river Luni. This artificial lake is bounded by hills and on its bank is a beautiful park - the Dault Bagh, making this place one fine spot for strolling in the morning and evening. Foy Sagar is just 5 kms from the town and 3 kms further up the valley from Ana Sagar Lake. Built during a famine relief programme it is named after the engineer responsible for its construction, the picturesque lake offers spectacular views form the hill.
