Our rickshaw driver took us to the monkey temple and recommended a guide to us. The guide was a young guy called Ravi who has grown up there. He took us to the temples and helped us feed the monkeys (although we lost one bag as one snatched it out of my hand as I wasn't paying attention!) and explained... More

We stopped here as part of our golden triangle tour. Entrance was free, you only have to pay 50rupees per camera. It's nice to walk around the temple and see all the monkeys just hanging around. There are a few people within the temple wanting to show you something or take your photo, for a small fee of course. There... More

Absolutely loved this place. There was a peaceful mysterious air about the whole complex....the beautiful seemingly deserted buildings tucked between a rocky gorge, The temple being used by locals and of course all the monkeys that never cease to entertain. I even found the town leading in to the monkey temple, to be really charming.

This place can be much more but is highly neglected and the water stinks. Good to visit but has some serious stinking aura.

This was one of our most memorable outings of a 2 week trip around Rajasthan, we caught a tuktuk from town, it takes about 30 min and is a small adventure in itself, we paid 500 inr each way, you could probably negotiate a better deal but we were pleased that our driver waited just over an hour and felt...

Visiting this sight, one can ponder over the marvelous sculpture of the templr itself. Two species of monkey are host of the temple to all guest visiting or praying at this holy sight.

A temple covered in fading murals with monkeys every where and still in use. The hilly back drop to the temple helps the place unfold piece by piece. During our visit there was an engagement being celebrated at the very top of the temple and it was lovely to watch the ladies in their finery singing and dancing then passing... More

Well worth the visit, grab a guide to really learn about the temples there and the bathing rituals for men & women. The monkeys are just a bonus as is their bathing area at the top. Don't do the walking way to get there unless you are fit /enjoy walking !

We were taken around this temple and witnessed the monkeys running down the mountain side for there food, a big bonus is that it doesn't seem to be all that touristy which was great
