Ajmer has been a home to many dynasties who came and left. They left behind the indelible marks of their cultures and traditions in the pages of the city’s history. The city is an amalgam of different cultures and a blend of Islam and Hinduism.
The three and a half centuries that followed the defeat of Prithvi Raj Chouhan saw Ajmer pass from one ruler to another. In 1556 AD it became an integral part of the Moughal empire and Akbar, the Great made it the military base for his conquest of Rajputana.
