Historians say that Mughal emperor Akbar had a special faith in the Dargah Ajmer Sharif. Akbar came to Ajmer from Agra barefoot for blessings to birth a son and sought the son’s wish. It took him 15 days to do this journey. After returning from here, he birthed Salim as a son. . Pleased with this, he used to visit here almost every year. This dargah remained his favorite destination for years.
