Unique sight

Definitely worth a visit if you are in Ajmer. It is something that is very different to the other temples or museums and gives a fascinating insight into an alternative worldview.

It is a wonderful place to visit. A city replica made of gold ... I think this place gives entrance to Jains only. But if you are a Jain it is like heaven. You must visit to experience it.

Somewhat unexpected for me Jain temple. I got used to the fact that Jain temples, as a rule, are famous for their remarkable and exquisite stone carvings. In this regard Nasiyan temple does not stand out. But it is built of red sandstone and is therefore itself red, which is rare for Jain temples, and consists of two large separate... More

This temple is in the heart of Ajmer city and has opening-closing timings, so you need to check before going. The temples have some really intricate and beautiful carving and painting on the walls. Inside the steps are steep but it is well worth the climb to see the golden sculptures with which the Jain sect propounds its view of... More

The place is worth a visit but please note that 1. Like most Jain temples, non-Jains are not allowed inside the main temple ; 2. One has to climb at least two storeys to view the great Golden miniature Ayodhya and then another storey to view from the top gallery. The architecture is great and awesome... all in gold with...

Have seen nothing like this. Best 30 mins of my life. To envision creating a mythical universe in gold and to actually execute it to perfection, i think over 50-60 years ago is just amazing.

Soni ji ki Nassiyan is located near to Railway station, Ajmer. It is a part of Jain temple. Though, you have to follow strict rules and regulations to enter in the main Jain temple, but it is easier to go inside Soniji ki Nassiyan. Inside it, a whole miniature of Kingdom has been placed through small golden statues of elephants,... More

Though a lot of my relatives are from Ajmer and I had visited Ajmer ages ago...no one never really mentioned THIS temple! While we went around the usual dargah, anasagar n adhai din ka jhopra circuit! I read about it on TripAdvisor! As I walked out of Anasagar Lake, I asked the lady guard posted there n she asked me...

At a walk-able distance from the Ajmer Sharif Dargah is the Nasiyan Jain Temple, popularly known as Soniji Temple. The main temple itself is not open for tourists. There is a Hall (Swarna Nagari Hall) behind it which is open to tourists and there is an entrance fee. The hall houses a gold gilded model depicting the Jain cosmology as... More
