BSP’s prize catch in dargah town

At first glance, Syed Ammad Chishti looks like an urban professional, juggling career and family.

It traces its descent to Khwaja Fakhruddin Gurdezi, who accompanied Khwaja Gharib Nawaz on his move to Ajmer around the year 1190.As the custodians of the monument, the Khadims have unrivalled access to the inner sanctum and perform all the rituals and ceremonies at the tomb.
