Hazrat Khwaja Moinuddin Hasan Chishti popularly known as Hazrat Khwaja Gharib Nawaz Ajmer , Khwaja Baba, was born in 1142 A.D. in Sijistan. His paternal genealogy is related to Hazrat Imam Hussain and that of his maternal to Hazrat Imam Hassan and thus he was a direct descendant of Prophet Hazrat Mohammad .

Over the Darbar, there is a silver ‘chaparkhat’ (canopy) inlaid with pieces of mother-of-pearl presented by Emperor Jahangir. Between the four poles supporting this `chaparkhat’, there is silver `katehra’ (railing) with an arch towards the south. There is another outer silver katehra running around the Darbar at a distance of about 2 feet. The devotees are led into this space to offer flowers and prayers over the Darbar. The ceiling of the dome is covered by a costly velvet chatgiri. A peculiar kind of fascinating aroma prevails in the shrine which inspires the visitors with a spontaneous and irresistible urge for devotion and homage towards the asleep saint. As soon as one enters the interior of the shrine, he feels as if he is in the presence of some exalted soul or mighty spiritual king.
