We first came to see monkeys from very close but we saw much more : we happily discovered some interesting Hindi temples, and saw religious people having a ritual bath. It's not far from Jaipur and even the way to get there was worth it.

I had quick visit of monkey temple where monkey roam around freely without making harm. You can feed them by buying peanuts at entrance. 30 min visit should be good.

Despite degradation and lack of conservation. The temple is still today a place of worship for the locals. It is possible to see believers bathing in the still and dirty waters of the ancient baths. The temple is ruled by "saints" - men who forsake their families and their whole lives to devote themselves to religion.

Lots of walk on slippery stones to reach the place. Nice views over Jaipur city and the surroundings.

My husband and I climbed to the top to see the temple and it was quite a walk getting hassled most of the way with folks selling things. There's a collection of monkeys at the top, bottom and all along the climb up. The temple at the top isn't that inspiring and you're requested to make a donation, what for... More

Before we went our driver and guide stopped at a local market to pick up some bananas. We would advise doing this as we were able to feed the spider monkeys on the way to the temple as well as the normal temple monkeys. This is a relatively short visit where you can feed a troop of monkeys and visit... More

I was not expecting too much from this temple but found it to be one of the highlights of my holiday. The monkeys are very friendly and so much fun to watch. It is lovely to see them living in natural surroundings. The temple is a ruin now but still worth a visit. It is easy to spend a long... More

We met a boy Naval who helped us through, see if u can find him. Give him a good tip at the end, they'll be... More

We got dropped off on the back side of the temple. Meaning we had to walk up a mountain and then down again to reach the actual "Galta Ji" (monkey) temple. If doing this route, strongly advise you to wear appropriate footwear as the rocks are very slippery. Along the way you see many monkeys and the views of the... More

This temple is super dirty And nothing really to see The only place to be is the view point on top of the hill where you have a panoramic view of Jaipur - access from the city side
