Soniji Ki Nasiyan, Ajmer Overview

It was long back in the year 1964 that the construction of this amazingly beautiful Soniji ki Nasiyan was started to be erected. With the placement of 'Agnidev' in the Sanctum Sanctorum on 26 May 1865, the temple was finally opened for the worshippers. The holy shrine was built by Rai Bahadur Seth Moolchand and Nemichand Soni, Jain Businessmen from Ajmer, and therefore, it is also called 'Nasiyan of Seth Moolchand Soni'. Soniji Ki Nasiyan is also known as Siddhkoot Chaitanya. In 1895 A.D, the Svarna Nagri was added to the temple and that’s when the temple was started to be known as 'Sone ka mandir'.
