The shrine is a symbol of religious convergence as people from all religions throng the holy place in large numbers with a belief that all their wishes would be fulfilled after they offer prayers at the shrine.

Thousands of devotees congregate at the revered Ajmer Sharif shrine every year to offer prayers on the occasion of `Urs` (death anniversary of a Sufi saint).

Among the other prominent Bollywood personalities, who had earlier visited the holy shrine were, Bollywood superstar Amitabh Bachchan, actress Priyanka Chopra and Deepika Padukone.

Apart from Bollywood actors frequently visiting the tomb of Moinuddin Chishti whose blessings are eagerly sought by pilgrims, politicians also visit the shrine to seek the blessings from the Sufi saint.

The shrine is the last resting place of the saint who died in the year 1235.
