It is so rooted to the place that few realize itís there - Ajmeri Gate in Delhi has a history of its own. During the Mughal times, this powerful signpost was the principal exit point for royal processions on their way to Ajmer, the Sufi pilgrim town in Rajasthan. But as one of the 14 gateways in the great wall of Shajahanabad, todayís Old Delhi, Ajmeri Gate lies disconnected from its past. The wall that is guarded has disappeared. Also lost to time are most of the wallís gateways; only four survive- Ajmeri Gate, Lahori Gate, Mori Gate and Kashmere Gate.

Ajmeri Gate is now tucked within a free-for-all traffic square. One road that heads to the New Delhi railway station; another to G.B. Road and a third to Chawri Bazar, Delhiís largest paper market that also happens to be a prominent metro station. Situated in such a grim and noisy region, Ajmeri Gate is in contrast, one of Delhiís most quiet monument that stands silently surrounded by the Rehman Mosque, the new chicken kebab shop, a branch office of Indian Labor Union, a police post, the fruit stalls and a few omelet carts.


As still as a grave, the gateway is at peace with the changing world around it, but on its own terms. It absorbs nothing of the outside chaos. Instead, the damp wall displays the calming vibes of a meditative Yogi. Many modern institutes and schools have developed in this part of Old Delhi, in order to meet the educational needs of the people of this locality. ARSD Senior Secondary School in Ajmeri Gate is one of the oldest and well known schools in this locality.

The school is an English Medium school, affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE).
