About Sinhoniyaji :

Sinhoniya is an ancient city established by ancestors of King Surajsen, the founder of Gwalior City, 2000 years ago. The king had sound faith in Jain Dharma. He constructed a big Jain Temple in Gwalior Fort and a temple in Sinhoniya. It is said that there were 11 Jain Temples at Sinhoniya established by Jaiswal Jains in 4th – 5th century.
This city was under the influence of Jains up to 10th century. Latter on this place was ruined by Muslim invaders, temples & idols were destroyed.
Development of Kshetra: – A celibate Shri Gumani Ramji dreamed in a night approximately 75 years ago that several idols are hidden under a hillock. According the dream he searched the proper place in the next morning and dug there. He got three standing idols of Bhagwan Shantinath 16 feet, Kunthunath 10 feet & Arahnath 10 feet. As the news spread, devotees started to come there, so many miracles happened. After some time a magnificent temple was built there, the three idols are still standing at the same place where they were found from the earth.
So many idols are still found here & there at Sinhoniya, many idols are displayed in museum in the temple.
Atishaya: – (i) Simply by viewing the Kshetra devotees feel eternal peace & joy, their desires get materialized earlier. While any person or animal falls ill in nearby area, persons commit something about Kshetra and their illness disappeared. Local public calls Chaitnath Baba to Bhagwan Shantinath. Chaitnath is corrupt form of word Chaityanath, Chaitya is used for Jain Temples.
(ii) Once an oilman denied to place Jain idols in Jain Temple, speedy rain of stones started at his home automatically and that was only stopped in next morning when he rushed to Jain Temple with idols to place there.
(iii) Gods of heaven often seen by villagers while they come here for worship of Bhagwan Shantinath & others.
