Festivals and Events in Ajmer

The main festivals in Ajmer is the annual Urs of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti that is held in the month of May and is one of the most visited festivals in India. Held at the Dargah (mausoleum) of the Sufi saint, pilgrims come from across the Muslim world, as do devotees of other religions, to pay homage to the saint on his death anniversary. A festival of Sufi music enhances the spiritual aura at the huge fair. Lengthy queues of several kilometres snake their way past the tomb at the shrine while outside the Dargah precincts, two massive cauldrons cook sweet rice garnished with dry fruits and condiments to be served as ‘Tabarukh’ or sanctified food.
