The holy city of Ajmer

Ajmer is in northern India and is frequented by many for various reasons, mainly for Tawassul (offering prayer via a holy medium). In Ajmer, there lies the remains of a saint of Ajmer in a Dargah (shrine). He is Mohinudeen Chishty, who wrote the Sufi book on healing which I had mentioned earlier in another post. Dr Amir Burhanuddin al-Helmy had studied at Ajmer. He was an early Malay doctor of Homeopathy.
