Mesmerized is the word that came to my mind while seeing this place for the first time. This place is really beautiful and one of a kind dedicated to Lord Surya. Very clean, calm and peaceful.

Surya Mandir (Sun Temple) is also called Monkey Temple. This part of famous Galtaji Temple situated at 200 metre height from City on Aravali Hills. Here are many temples including Hanuman Temple. From here yoy have a nice view of Jaipur City but be aware of Monkeys wandering here and there. A Nice visit.

When we started clicking our pictures in our camera we realized that this temple is so photogenic. The temple is situated at a good height so you can see the panoramic view of Jaipur. I loved the place as its quite best to see the natural view of the pink city - jaipur. A must visit. Stairs are quite a... More

The Surya Mandir Jaipur is off the common tourist trail and with it the hassle of touts, beggars or peddlers.there are wonderful panoramic views, which are best viewed at sunset. The Surya Mandir Jaipur a good tourist activity of Jaipur.
