It is located at a distance of just 450 Meter from Dargah. So, we decided to go without any vehicle, there is a lot of shops. We were going there to have a look of those shop. So when we will come back to buy anything we would remember. After 2 mins of walk we reached there and stayed sometimes to see everything as we were excited to see those walls and so on.
Why it named as Adhai din ka Jhonpra, The reason is it was establish only in “2½” days. Founded by Qutub-ud-Din-Aibak on the order of Mohammad Ghori in 1192.

Best thing in Ana Sagar lake is you can visit island from the boat. Which is located mid of the lake & it’s costing of 160 INR per person. The best time to visit from October to March when the water level is full because in the summer season lake dries up.
According to historian, When Hazrat Khwaja Gareeb Nawaz Moinuddin Chishti arrived in Ajmer with some of his followers.
