For long, Ajmer remained a politically
and spiritually important centre for the Rajputs,
the Mughals and the Marathas. It continued to be the
seat of administration for the Chauhans till, in 1193,
the army of Mohammad Ghori defeated Prithviraj Chauhan.
Thereafter, it became part of the Sultanate of Delhi.
However, the Rajputs regained control
of the city with the crusades of Rana Kumbha of Mewar
and Raja Maldeo.
Today, Ajmer is a significant spiritual
and cultural centre of India and people from all spheres
and religions of life throng to the city to seek the
blessings of Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chishti,
whose shrine is located in the heart of the city.
