Nasiyan Jain Temple, Ajmer Reviews
Wonder of a place which has a Jain temple and also a display of Jain epics crafted out of 1000's of kilos of gold! Never knew such places existed. This was a total surprise for me as I happened to visit Ajmer on my way to Jodhpur. Entry ticket of 10 rupees. You can walk around the depiction and take a very nice view if you arrive around the opening time, which was 10 AM when I visited. Totally worth the visit. Jain glory is shown in gold!
Marvelous, intricate wooden sculptures. Every small, complex figurines sets up the entire scene (which they are trying to convey) very well. The downside is that, the temple is not adequately maintained or staffed. Overall, it is worth a visit.
The Nasiyan Jain Temple is at Prithviraj Marg in Ajmer, Rajasthan. This temple is dedicated to Lord Adinath. It was built in 1865. Nasiyan temple is considered as one of the best Jain temples in Rajasthan. Nasiyan Temple is divided into two parts. One, where Lord Adinath’s idol is worshiped and second is the museum which includes a hall. The major attraction is the museum hall due to its astonishing interiors made up of gold. This beautiful museum illustrates the five stages (Panch Kalyanak) in the life of Lord Adinath, in the form of statues. The main hall is exquisite with gold and silver decorations. Inside the temple there is a luxurious display of wooden gilt representations, glass paintings and engravings narrating the Jain faith about the creation of the world. Since the place is decorated with such precious stones, gold and silver work, it’s also known as Soniji Ki Nasiyan. Reaching Nasiyan Temple is quite easy by hiring taxis or taking buses from anywhere in Rajasthan. It is just a kilometer away from the Ajmer Sharif Dargah.
Soni ji ki nasiya is an old architecture of Jain shamaj . It displays the gold statues of their God and the old architecture of their shamaj.
Mesemerizing. You can spend hours looking at the intricacies of this beautiful timeless art marvel.
