As far as wildlife is concerned, the Indian peninsula is a continent in itself where the sheer diversity of the wildlife astounds you with more than 350 species of mammals and 1200 avifauna species in the country.
The people want to do only one thing in the cities during the summers – they want to get away from it. They want a cool getaway in India itself where they can have some respite from the scorching heat of the plains.
Ajmer Dargah Sharif
The Ajmer Dargah Sharif is one of the holiest Muslim shrines in the country. It is revered by both Muslims and Hindus alike and pilgrims belonging to all castes or creed are welcome at the Dargah Ajmer Sharif. This shrine was built in honour of Khwaja -Moin-Ud-Din-Chisti, a Sufi saint who devoted his life to the service of the downtrodden and the poor.
Architecturally the Dargah is a sight to behold with its massive gate embellished with silver doors. The actual tomb of the saint is surrounded by a marble screen and a silver railing. The dome is made of marble and is gold plated.
This colossal fort stands guard over the city of Ajmer. The Taragarh Fort, Ajmer has as many as six points of entry and offers panoramic views of Ajmer, a resultant of its location in Nagpahari hills of the Aravalli ranges.
A point of interest in this alluring fort is the Miran-Saheb-Ki-Dargah. The historical value of this fort is unmatched and its archaeological importance cannot be denied.
A masterpiece of Indo-Islamic architecture, this building is an old mosque that was built in two and a half days and hence the name. Seven pointed arches and a front screen wall make up the essential structure of the Adhai-Din-Ka-Jhopra.
