The Dargah Sharif in Ajmer is one of the most popular tourist places in Rajasthan. It is the maqbara or grave of the Sufi Saint Khwaja Moinudeen Chisti and attracts hundreds and thousands of devotees, pilgrims and tourists from all over the country and the world.
The main entrance to the shrine is the Nizam Gate. Following this is the Shahjahani Gate, which was built by the Mughal Emperor Shah Jahan. The next gate that follows the Shahjahani Gate is the Buland Darwaza, which leads to the shrine. The Urs flag is hoisted on the Buland Darwaza and marks the beginning of the shrine.
The dargah is managed by the Dargah Committee, appointed under The Dargah Khwaja Saheb Act of 1955. The committee takes care of the maintenance of the shrine, manages donations and runs charitable institutions such as guest houses for pilgrims and dispensaries.
