This place has plenty of monkeys and no shortage of great and helpful students willing to guide you along your way so armed with some peanuts, we headed off and were mobbed by monkeys posing very well for great photos and they were very well behaved.

When we visited, we were the only foreigners/tourists here. The street leading up to the temple was filled with pigs, feces, and more monkeys than we were comfortable with. Before parking, our tuk tuk driver told us when we arrive a guy will offer his protection from the monkeys for a fee, but it's not actually needed. However, as we... More

I wanted to go to monkey temple but we were told it was closed, the guide was very reluctant to take us there, but at the end he agreed. On the way there you can actually see the Indian slams (just see from the car), people taking care of their needs right there on the side of the road (like... More

This place is not (yet) that touristic. Local people come here to pray, bath and feed the monkeys on certain days. The monkeys are not really aggressive. In fact, they are much nicer than the ones in Taj Mahal. But if you want to feed them or take pictures of monkeys sitting on your shoulder, I strongly recommend to hire... More

This place is simply enchanting. Built in the middle of the rocks, reminded me of many movies (Indiana Jones, The jungle book, ...). I felt like being in a place totally out of time. The monkeys were pure fun. I think this mystical place is unique, and it's absolutely worth a visit.

Our visit to this temple is one that will last our family a lifetime. It is a photographic dream a gorgeous temple nestled into the side of a mountain, 360 degree views of beauty surround you. But, the stars of the temple are the troops of monkeys that inhabit the temple, these are "movie and television show" monkeys from NatGeo... More

We visited this place on the way to jaipur. Our driver was friendly enough to buy lots of bananas on the way. Me and my boyfriend were worried about the monkeys so we did not take the bananas in our hands and asked our driver to distribute them. I was surprised to see how friendly the monkeys are and there... More
