Ajmer District in Rajasthan


Ajmer District is a district of the state of Rajasthanmarker in western Indiamarker. The city of Ajmermarker is the district headquarters.

Ajmer District has an area of 8,481 kmĀ², and a population of 2,180,526 (2001 census). The district is situated in the center of Rajasthan, and is bounded by Nagaur District to the north, Jaipur and Tonk districts to the east, Bhilwara District to the south, and Pali District to the west.

Ajmer Geography

The eastern portion of the district is generally flat, broken only by gentle undulations, but the western parts, from north-west to south-west, are intersected by the great Aravalli Rangemarker. Many of the valleys in this region are sandy deserts, part of India's Thar Desert, with an occasional oasis of cultivation, but there are also some very fertile tracts; among these is the plain on which lies the town of Ajmer. This valley, however, is not only fortunate in possessing a noble artificial lake, but is protected by the massive walls of the Nagpathar range or Serpent rock, which forms a barrier against the sand. The only hills in the district are the Aravalli Range and its offshoots. Ajmer is almost totally devoid of rivers, the Banas being the only stream which can be dignified with that name, and it only touches the south-eastern boundary of the district so as to irrigate the pargana of Samur. Four small streams--the Sagarmati, Saraswati, Khari and Dai--also intersect the district. In the dry weather they are little more than brooks.

The district is divided into four subdivisions, Ajmer, Beawarmarker, Kekrimarker and Kishangarhmarker, and further subdivided into six tehsils, Ajmer, Beawar, Nasirabad, Kekri, Kishangarh.
