In this era of communalism and religious intolerance, Ajmer comes across as an extremely secular town and a unifying shrine in Rajasthan . Founded in the 7th century by Raja Ajpal Chauhan, Ajmer served as the Bastion of he Chauhan kings. The city passed on to the Mewar kings and was at last annexed by the Mughal Emperor Akbar. Ajmer is renowned for the Shrine dedicated to the Muslim saint lovingly known as Khwaja who longed to unite the people of the land in a common bond or brotherhood.

Ajmer City is well connected to the rest of the country and the world through regular flights plying to and from Jaipur Airport.
