Another Golden Temple, this time in Ajmer

As you give the entry fee and get into the temple, you will reach a big hall which is protected from all four sides by building glass walls from the verandahs. This large hall consist of many statues, buildings, etc made of gold. You can see the same thing from both ground and first floors.. It's a must visit place in Ajmer.. If I'm right, the ticket per head is 20 and you can finish off the things in maximum 1 hour.

Very peaceful place

This Jain temple was constructed in 1865 AD and is definitely a sanctum of quietude. Very peaceful and clean. The architecture is worth admiring. Just behind this temple is the Swarn Nagri Hall, housing gilt wooden representations of scenes from Jain mythology. The hall is richly painted and decorated. It has illustrative representations of the birth of Rishabhdev, the Tirthankar. Be prepared to climb steep flight of stairs to reach the highest floor!! , but very well worth the effort.

Exciting City Of Gold

This is also known as Soniji Ki Nasiyan, having an exciting City Of Gold. Great and marvelous craftsmanship, towards the Divine devotion. Several Gold Plated wooden figures are depicted. This Temple is dedicated to the Lord Rishabhdev or Adinath, is a Digamber Jain Temple built by Seth Moolchand Soni and Nemichand Soni, foundation laid on 10 Oct 1864, and represent the five auspicious events, conception, birth, renunciation, enlightenment, and salvation. For further beautification and Jain's fashion it took 25 years from 1870-1895. And Seth Moolchand Soni ill luck that he could not see the finished one. Situated just in the heart of the city and still it is owned by the Soni Family. The one at Ajmer, now over a hundred years old, is by far the largest and most artistic, heart touching model of that much-loved historical tale. The temple is being visited by many tourists annually. Distinguished Visitors include India's first President Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Prime Ministers Jawaharlal Nehru, Indira Gandhi, Morarji Desai & Rajiv Gandhi, Commander-in-Chief General K. M. Cariappa. Pre independence the Viceroy and Vicereine of India Lord & Lady Irwin and Lady Willingdon also visited.
