It was really sad to see what would usually be a beautiful place in the state that it is in now. The place is not being maintained anymore and they have actually closed it off and stopped you going near the water. It is really dirty, rubbish everywhere and the water is very bad. I would not even bother going out to see it and pay the money for it until at least it can be fixed up a whole lot.

Not well maintained! Poor welcome with just a pushy donation request after the entrance payment. The monkeys are far from the place we observe them.

Its quite calm place. I visited there on Dec'2019. It is also known as galta ji temple. It has a lake where you can take bath as well.

Large complex but a slice of life and not too many foreign tourists (pre covid March 2020) Need to get taxi or tick tuck to get there as a bit out of town. I took tuck to one of the city gates and walked over the hill approaching from the back as it looked ok on google maps but it was mainly a stony walking path and took me a little while but lovely views.

Well, what can I say!

The order was taken correctly and delivered promptly. The food was hot and very tasty.

The staff are courteous, polite, and always willing to go the extra mile for their regular customers.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant for either takeaway which we have to do at the moment, or when the lockdown is over a sitdown meal.

My only regret is that I can only give this restaurant five out of five as it deserves a score far higher.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant to any potential customer.

The Galta Ji Monkey Temple in Jaipur is a place where you can feel the real silence. The monkeys are very sociable. You can easily feed them and watch how they manage during feeding. There are a lot of monkeys in the temples themselves, but just go lower to see the whole view of the city from one side and meet the little creatures. The complex of temples causes that man begins to contemplate the surrounding beauty in silence.

This temple is well hidden on the mountains. You have to climb up and then down again to get there. It’s an isolated place with small groups of young men selling and smoking pot. I was with my boyfriend but felt intimidated. There are no signs or whatsoever that indicates where the temple is. We had to ask for directions to the people there and then being ask for money in return. When we finally got to the place we found out that apart from the entrance ticket (100 rupees) you have to pay a camera fee even if you plan to take pics with your cellphone that was more expensive than the actual ticket (150 rupees). That’s a total rip-off! So you end up paying 250 per persons. As we found that ridiculous we decided not to pay for the camera and just enjoy the visit. The staff at the counter was threatening us about taking pics without the permit and pushing us to put away the cellphone (that I was carrying it in my hand all the way down the mountain) as if they were security personal. They were close to be aggressive and they were blocking our entry with their bodies until we put the phone away. It was a horrible experience! Moreover, The temple is not worthy at all!! Not the walk up and down, not the entry fee (you can do a lot in India with 250 rupees per person), not the unsafe feeling. It’s a dirty and smelly place private owned so I guess they just see the income from the tourist coming and do little to make the experience enjoyable.

Monkeys. What more can I say? Monkeys playing. Monkeys sleeping. Monkeys bathing and generally being monkeys. In a temple just for them. All very intimate. Gold. No hawkers. A must visit in Jaipur

Driving from Ranthambhore to Jaipur we stopped off at a craft center, refreshment stop, and met an English couple who suggested we see this Monkey Sanctuary as it was on the outskirts of Jaipur. Our driver was happy to adjust the programme and took us to this astonishing abandoned temple overrun with monkeys. Having expected some sort of small, enclosed sanctuary we were just amazed at the scale of the place. The old, huge temple is built in to huge cliffs and must have been magnificent once. The site felt quite eerie but we were so pleased we made the detour. Lots of cheeky monkeys but at no stage did they approach too close or seem threatening.
A special experience.

A beauktiful place to sit and relax with family in the laps of Galta Ghati and amongst a beautiful temple premises. It is on the Delhi Jaipur Highway. You would witness a lot of monkey around and thats not a brainer to guess. So keep calm, like literally calm. Do not get excited or panicked because then you would panic the monkeys there. They love being around however if your tease/ shout or fiddle with them they would not be so nice. We were able to enjoy every bit of it.

You should be aware that there is a fees to carry your camera if you are carrying one. Have fun
