In conversation with Syed Jasim Chishti, caretaker and volunteer at the hallowed Ajmer Sharif Dargah

 

Sahapedia speaks to Syed Jasim Chishti, caretaker and volunteer at the hallowed Ajmer Sharif Dargah. He talks about the Rajput origins of Ajmer and how Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti, in whose memory the dargah was built, came to live in Ajmer. While speaking about the contributions of rulers from different faiths in building it, he notes the long tradition of religious amity that has prevailed there, as is evidenced by the public eating facilities at the dargah that serve food to all people irrespective of their faith.
