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

15 minutes Walking distance from Dargah. you must visit the temple. There was a ticket of Rs.10. When you enter second floor you can see a huge city built in gold.

An unknown jewel, hidden away in Ajmer. An intricate display of the Jain religions' view of the structure of the Universe. Have to climb three stories of steep stairs (don't think there was a lift), well worth it.

Very impressive gold sculptures telling stories from Jain mythology. There are English signs explaining the different scenes but they weren't that clear. Anyway even without understanding the meaning the sculptures are still worth seeing.

I promise you: You have never seen anything like this. The central hall of the temple is a huge sculptural representation of the university, according to Jain cosmology. The details might not be obvious to anyone not already familiar with the texts, but the effect is nevertheless stunning. To my knowledge, there is no similar temple anywhere. In fact, the... More

Located in the city centre, this should be a must visit for everyone. The photos should suffice to showcase the magnificence of the place. There's a minor entry fee, but it's worth it. Do take help of a local city guide to understand the history here.
