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

While you're there, ask one of the young boys to come on top with you. They're really nice and helps you from getting attacked my any monkeys, also teach you how to feed the monkeys. 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

Kids and adults will love it not only amusing with the monkeys but also mystical place with different view at every turn ... it does however need to be visited early morning when it's coolest does get very warm and quite a high climb

We knew there was a festival of some kind going on but couldn't believe the amazing colourful spectacle that greeted us. We walked past the women taking their holy bath in all the colourful splendor and were amuzed to find the men a little further on very drab looking and few in number! We walked what seemed like a long... More

We made a quick stop at this place on our way into town, just as it was closing, so there were fewer people there and the monkeys were settling in for the night. Definitely need a guide with you or some pre-researched info to really appreciate the original purpose of the site. SO many monkeys and such a unique setting.
