Sonagiri is a place sacred to Digambar Jains. It is situated 60 km. from Gwalior and has a chain of Jain temples of 9th - 10th century on this hill since the time from Chandraprabhu. As we were approaching towards the hill, we could clearly see an umbrella of white temples covering the hill.
As we were about to enter the temple area we were asked to remove our shoes, we looked at the stairs which were scorching by this time but for such a beautiful place this was worth.
Devotees and saints come to this place to practice self-discipline and to attain Nirvana, freedom from cycles of life and death. It is believed that till date Five & half Crores of ascetic saints have achieved salvation (Moksha or Nirvana) at this holy place. Nang, Anang, Chintagati, Poornachand, Ashoksen, Shridatta, Swarnbhadra and many other saints achieved salvation from here. Acharya Shubh Chandra & Bhartrihari lived and worked here for spiritual achievements.
Eleven feet in height, beautiful idols of Lord Sheetal Nath & Parsvnath are also installed here.
