MoU Signed to Give Facelift to Ajmer Dargah

Jaipur: The historical dargah of Sufi mystic Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti in Ajmer is all set to get a facelift as a memorandum of understanding has been signed by the Dargah Committee, the Ajmer Municipal Corporation and Hindustan Zinc for spending ₹5.68 crore to clean and manage the shrine. The 13th-century dargah has been included among the Swachh Iconic Places, a clean-up initiative focused on iconic heritage, spiritual and cultural places through a multi-stakeholder approach model. In Ajmer, the Collector will act as the project’s nodal agency with the Dargah Committee and ‘khadims’ (workers) being the primary stakeholders. An amount of Rs 5.68 crore will be invested in the project’s first phase for establishment of two flower compost making machines, cleaning and basic repair of the Jhalra pond, re-flooring in select areas, procurement of machines for cleaning the floors, conservation of Shahjahani Gate and initial plans for Nizam Gate. The MoU was signed in Ajmer in the presence of Union Minister for Minority Affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi last fortnight. Two flower compost machines have already been installed in Kayad at a cost of Rs 27 lakh for churning out about 25 kg of compost from 100 kgs of flowers offered at the dargah.
