One of the most important Sufi shrines in india. A place of faith and thronged by devotees from all religions. It’s crowded all the time of the year.

I visited Ajmer with friends just to visit this Dargah. I reached Ajmer at 3 in the night and visited Dargah at 9 in the morning. All the things were smoothed. But the problem is you’ll find Beggars all around which won’t be leaving if you didn’t give them something. They will demand higher amoount in cash or in kind. So I would suggest please don’t listen to them and keep walking.
Inside the Dargah everything is good and you’ll find peace going inside

Best time to visit morning 6-8 am, otherwise very crowded place. Don't carry valuables, take care of mobile, jewelry etc. Shoes not allowed inside and it is must to cover head. Better to engage some known khhadim outside and do haazri otherwise they will make fool of you by asking money at various points. It should be managed in a better way.

This is not for regular tourists. Unless paying obeisance at the mausoleum the average tourist can give it a miss. If it happens to be a Thursday or the sixth of the month in the Islamic calendar you will be crushed in the melee of crowds. Even on ordinary days it is a scene of milling crowds all trying to pay respects at the shrine. Beware of pickpockets, vendors n pestering beggars.

It was my long pending dream to visit Ajmer Shariff Darga for prayer. But the time we reached at that place it was namaz time so we got stuck and once it’s done the crowd was so bad that I was about get stamped. With the blessings of baba I managed to come out from the crowd.

To avoid the crowd one should check the timing of Namaz and other holidays. So can come and pray peacefully.

One should be very careful about fraud people and pickpocketers. Like all other pilgrims this place also having people who will force you to pay money to show your devotion towards Garib Nawaz Khawaja Baba. But as like the name “ Garib Baba” never asks for money or expensive gifts except a pure heart.

The experience of my visit to this place was really good. The place have a huge gathering of people and most of the time you may feel that you are being driven by the flow of so many people. The entry and exit point is same and sometimes it creates lot of problem as there is no crowd management. Luckily the person who escorted us from the shop from where we took the offering (prasad and chaddar) was really a good man and guided us well for the darshan. He asked us to wait even when the people were pushing hard to get in. We waited for his instruction and when the crowed really got reduced he signaled us to proceed. There are many beggars and people selling things on the street but we had no problems of misshaping with us. May be we were extra cautious from the several reviews that we had gone through. We really went "light" to this place. There was always a word of caution from people starting from hotel followed by the auto-rickshaw man that we hired to go to this place and there was constant announcement over the loud speaker. Overall it was a great experience. Looking forward to visit again in near future.

We were covering Pushkar and Ajmer in one day. After finishing Pushkar, we travelled back to ajmer and went straight to the railway station. We kept our bags in the cloak room but if you plan to do so, make sure your bags are properly locked otherwise they do not allow to keep it in cloak room. We had couple of small trolley bags which we could not lock, hence had to carry it with us. We negotiated an auto for 50 but wanted it to drop us near the dargah gate but the driver mentioned that we should take the foot overbridge near the station gate and walk to the dargah, because we would need to keep our stuff in the cloak room on the way. The walk was through very narrow street from the clock tower and seemed never ending (may be because of the bags we were carrying and the outside heat). We got a hotel Arzoo palace on the way whose manager/owner was very nice and agreed to store our bags. Such a relief it was. We had some cold drinks on the way and kept checking on the stuffs on the street while we walked towards the dargah. We bought a chadar for 100 bucks on the way to be presented at the dargah. In front of the dargah, it is crazy crowd. Anyone can get overwhelmed by it. There were lot of maulana’s and they could easily understand that we have no idea where to go. It is not very intuitive as well. We bought some flowers for another 100 and also bought a handkerchief for 20 bucks, as both ladies and gents as well as kids have to cover their head. We also kept our shoes there at the flower shop. And even before we know, we were being guided by the maulana’s. We tried to follow the crowd but because of constant un-needed guidance, we kind of fell into the trap and were taken to an older maulana and asked to sit there while he read some prayers. What I could understand from his words is he was wanting us to commit to some hefty donation, to which I said No. They were not very happy and started scolding us. But nothing doing, I just went away from there and stood behind a queue which was heading into the dargah. They were still calling us but I just avoided eye contact with them. As you stand in the queue and get closer to the god, you start getting pushed by the huge crowd. We managed to give our chadar and flowers to the maulana inside, who just threw it onto the god and we put some money into the donation box and kept moving. Once we came out, there was no more pursuing by anyone and it was so relaxing. We sat there for some time and also saw the badi degh and choti degh on the way out. With the constant crowd flow and pushing and shoving, we were courageous enough to click couple of pictures in front of the dargah. There were lot beggars also in that place, which is quite natural for any such place. We took the same route back, as we had to pick up our bags. My wife bought some dresses and sarees and it was cheaper than Jaipur. Got some good quality bandhini dresses for 300 bucks. We picked our bags from arzoo palace and the owner was kind enough not to charge anything for keeping the bags there. We then had pure veg lunch at some place near the clock tower, bought another bag to keep our shopping stuff and went to the station to pick up our bags and wait for our train to Udaipur.

Its a good place for worshippers. I arrived very early morning at Ajmer and booked a room. Therein at 7 am visited dargah. I advise you not hire any khadim. No need of chaddar to presented to the sufi saint and avoid beggars as all this is a kind of Money making tricks. Just sit outside the tomb under tree and wish.
