We visited this temple only after we had exhausted all the other tourist attractions in Jaipur. A glitch in our trip to Rajasthan kept us in Jaipur for a few more unexpected nights. Our driver, Rakesh, mentioned that we should visit the Monkey Temple. I loved it! We were greeted by lots of cows and swarms of pilgrims. The people... More

This is not a tourist site, per say but it is well worth a visit. If you are interested in the Hindu religion and the monkey god, Hanuman its educational and amazing as they relate to the monkeys who freely roam the temple at the top of a steep hill. Mantras are sung which contribute to the atmosphere. Be careful... More

Money Temple is all that it name suggests. We brought peanuts from outside and kept the paper bag inside our pockets and just a few peanuts in hands. The monkeys didn't attack us but approached us, as we handed out the peanuts,they took it and went. it was like feeding a pet rather than wild monkeys. At the monkey pool,... More

There were not that many people when we visited and also not that many monkey's. the few that were around was playing. The temple itself I loved.

I loved Jaipur and all of the forts, palaces and sights. Galta Ji was absolutely my favourite among them, and I would recommend that every visitor to the region puts this on their itinerary. This is an active temple, so on Sunday, hundreds of local worshippers come to the pools to bathe and worship. it is an explosion of colour... More

Getting to see the monkeys up close is very cool, although these ones certainly know how to exploit the tourists by getting food from you and remember these are monkeys and do not care about hurting you. Be aware of the people trying to scam you at the bottom to take you around etc. Walkable on your own.

The Monkey Temple was my favorite thing in Jaipur and most memorable stop in my India trip. There are free-range monkeys everywhere that are so neat to go up and walk with. Be aware of people trying to give you a private tour, if you do not want to pay at all. I had 20-year-old man give me a tour,... More
