Sonagiri is a small town in Datia district near Dabra and it is about 60 KMs from Gwalior city. Sonagiri is basically a Jain pilgrimage hill station and it is one of the primary pilgrimage places for the Jain devotees.

In this article, I am going to tell you about my trip experience to Sonagiri, the history of Sonagiri temples in Datia, and the complete travel guide to Sonagiri temples in Datia Madhya Pradesh.
