Definitely worth a trip out to- make sure they take you the route out of the city. We took an auto from bani park and he waited and brought us back for 450rs. Great architecture, friendly monkeys, no admission charge but you will be haranged for tips and donations. Spend the 20rs to buy peanuts for the monkeys.

idyllic location in the valley, at the bottom of beautiful gardens, the top of the actual temple, which is visited by stylishly dressed believers who make a ritual ablution. In addition, many harmless monkeys.

This is an old temple in the hills and I visited at dusk just as the sun was going down. Sunrise and sunset are supposedly the best times to visit as the monkeys all congregate here before heading off into the hills. The place was buzzing with monkeys, but as with all wild monkeys, be careful of what you're carrying... More

I read some of the reviews of this place and shook my head. People who are going to complain about everything should stay home. This is an ancient place, not Disneyland. If you'd rather pay $75 at the door for a pristine, boring experience, this is not for you. Yes, we voluntarily gave the monk a donation of 100 rupees,... More

Big temple, but very dirty. Long drive from main hotels of Jaipur. Visit this place only if you have time on your hand.

We visited as a family of four in December. My wife and I remembered the place from a visit in 1992 and it was almost exactly the same as we remembered it. The complex consists of a series of small temples and pools that are built successively higher up a gorge. We visited on a Monday and the place was... More

This place is rancid, the monkeys are vicious and might attack you. I paid a really obnoxious kid 500 rupees to make sure I didn't get attacked. The monks are hustlers like everyone else here. Careful feeding the monkeys, they turn nasty quick. Totally awesome, check out the Sun Temple at the top of the hill. I met a snake... More

Galtaji Sooraj Mandir is Out of the city limits. Takes about 2-3 hours to reach the top. Dotted with numerous temples dedicated to various deities en-route. The Pundits will politely implore you to take a dip in the Holy pond 'Kund' , but the water is Green and Opaque. Also, umpteen people take a bath and wash clothes so it's... More

top 3 tips i got from other reviews: 1. take a taxi, not a tuk tuk, (we used Meru) and absolutely ask the driver to wait for you as you will not be able to get a car there 2. beware of the monkeys 3. do not accept candy from strangers (or monks) getting to Galtaji temple is not easy,... More
