Khwaja Moinuddin Chishty(R.A) arrived in AJMER at the age of 52 years
around 587 A.H./1190 A.D., on his divine mission, unique in the annals
of Islam. His only Armour for the success of his great mission was the
greatest "invisible power" the pervades and sustains the whole
universe. At that time Ajmer was ruled by Prithvi Raj Chauhan the famous
Rajput king. In his court, he had a large number of powerful magicians
with Ajai Pal as their leader. Khwaja Saheb stayed at a hill close to
Ana Sagar lake. Now known as the Chilla Khwaja Saheb. When news spread,
that a very pious Dervish had come to Ajmer people began to flock to him
in increasing number. Whosoever came to him, received the kindest treatment
and blessing and simplicity that they began to embrace Islam. Many became
his disciples. Even Ajai Pal submitted himself to the divine powers of
Khwaja Saheb , gave up all his magic and became his disciple.
