Our kids (13 and 14) said this was the best place of our whole trip to Rajasthan. They enjoyed playing and feeling the monkeys. It is indeed a good distraction outside of Jaipur.

Galta Ji has a unique and photo worthy appearance, over 500 years of hindi pilgrimage history, and a chance to feed monkey in the wild... why wouldn't you go. Yes, it is small (3 levels to get to the monkey pool and temple area) and there may be some people who beg or ask for money, but don't let that... More

India is the land of nice people. One of the great example was my visit to monkey temple called galta ji where people gave food to the monkeys and the monkeys came near to the people once they showed banana to them and take it with them from their hands. it was quite thrilling.

A place with lots and lots of monkeys. Various temples showcasing different deities are also present. One has to walk all the way from the entrance to a short uphill path that pass through a few temples. Nice place to click pictures and visit a few temples

This is a great way to spend some time here, the admission is really cheap and there's plenty to do. Please ensure that you are able to walk without assistance as there are many steps. The scenery is spectacular and worth the visit.

There is nothing to see as a temple. Just some dirty ruins and crazy monkeys. I think that doesn't worth to visit it. There is no charge to visit it. It may be some people asking for money.

You MUST find the monkey whisperer man. He's amazing. He talks to the monkeys it's insane! He gets them to sit on your head and your shoulder. Totally not aggressive monkeys he soothes them. A baby monkey ate a peanut from out of my hand! At one point I had FOUR monkeys on me. I've never seen so many monkeys... More

We went to the monkey temple from the front side and walked around 30-40mins to monkey temple. The temple supposed not to charge but one guy requested to charge "camera fee" as we bring camera. To go to the monkey temple, there is another entrance and no guy would charge. There is an interesting place with cow, lamps, monkeys like... More

If you do then you need to do 2 things. 1) Get your taxi driver to contact the 'monkey trainer/whisperer' a local guy with long hair who has done work with national geographic. He is a local 'volunteer' guide and will show you around for fee of your choice.... We paid 200rp. 2) Visit the monkey temple. The monkeys are... More
