We arrived late afternoon. The place was deserted with only one monkey. There is no entry fee but we paid Rs50/camera. The view was just okay from the top. Go if you have free time and transport as it was quite a drive up the mountain.

Do not go here. I was so disappointed and really did not enjoy the experience. It is so dirty and polluted. It ruined my first impression of Jaipur and I wish I had not gone.

We went in the evening around 6 pm or so. We walked up to the temple through poop and among monkeys that did not look friendly. I remember reading the review about the "pesky creatures" and thought "the lady was right!". As a matter of fact, one monkey hissed and showed his teeth at my daughter: cute video I guess.... More

This is a remote place and you will require a tuc-tuc to get there, If you feed the monkeys they do behave well - the place itself is DIRTY even for India, which has some charm too.. The temple is small and the atmosphere is unique. You either love it or not ..

Today we visited the Monkey Temple in Jaipur. We nearly didn't bother but so glad we went. The landscape is spectacular, the temple itself in semi ruins but so wonderfully Indian. It was quiet as far as "attractions" go so that was nice. The different details of the shrines were explained to us by various guides who spoke good English.... More

I really enjoyed visiting the monkey temple in Jaipur. It's a cool place to explore, and I love watching the monkeys and how they interact with each other. I had the chance to have them jump up on my shoulders, it was lots of fun. I wish I could have read more about the history of the temple before going.... More

A 15 min walk. A dirty place. There are monks who want to rip you off and get paid for their prayers. Lots of poor people around and full of monkeys, cows, dogs.
