Muslim Pilgrimage in Rajasthan

According to the historical records, Rajasthan wasn't just the land of Rajputs; Muslims rulers have contributed a lot to the development of the state. The epitome of the glorious period, which Muslim rulers spent in the colorful Rajasthan are the mosques and dargah ( shrine built over the grave of a revered religious figure) that can be found in the state. Some of the finest unnoticed Muslim architecture style that can be seen in Rajasthan are Ukha Masjid (Bharatpur), Nabi Qadi Hamid Al-din Masjid (Pali), Khanzadon ki Masjid (Bari Khatu), Jama Masjid (Sawai Madhopur), to name a few. The introduction of Muslim shrines in Rajasthan is incomplete without the mention of Dargah of Khwaja Muin-ud-din Chishti; located in Ajmer. It is the tomb of Sufi saint Khwaja Muin-ud-din Chishti, who came to Ajmer from Persia in 1192 and died here in 1236. If tourists want to visit places off the typical landscape and royal forts of Rajasthan than a visit to these mosques and dargahs can prove to be a good break for the spiritual journey.
