There were a good few monkeys about but they were quite aggressive and trying to grab at us. The sellers and beggars were higly annoying. Far more interesting than the monkeys were the views from the temple at the top out over the city.

The monkey temple has the potential to be really cool, but unfortunately there is trash everywhere. If you have your own tour guide it could be great. If you are going alone, I wouldn't recommend it.

It is a very nice place and I have seen a lot of baby monkays and if you have some peanuts or bananas you are their best friend.

Wow, is this place underrated. Because it's out of the top 20 on TA, we only went there by chance when a taxi driver said it was a must see. Amazing place to feed and play with monkeys or cobras. Strolling up the gorge on the staircase gives you a pleasant view of the area. Yes, the water is dirty,... More

As a westerner when I was dropped off by my driver in the carpark & I was immediately approached by local villagers wanting to act as my guide or peddle me their wares. Ignoring first instincts I selected a "rough looking guy" to be my guide & after a firm but polite no with a smile I was not hassled... More

Don't waste your time. Filthy, smells like s..t everywhere. Go somewhere else.... There are a lot of people who are trying to sell you something. It's a petty actually. If they would take care of the place this could be great.

This is free, relatively quiet and understated. Some amazing but neglected buildings. Good to see locals here and no peddlars. I would never have found this but our amazing guide and driver, Ankit from ' discover India by car' took us here. Worth a visit.

My friend and I stayed in Jaipur for 3 days and we were very lucky to have met and have a new friend-our Tuktuk driver named Lucky. He was with us for 3 days and this is one of the places he have showed us. We visited this place twice and we loved it. The first time, it was getting... More

This place is filthy & gross & filled with beggars & no monkeys (OK, a view of 2 monkeys far away up a hillside). We saw many more monkeys in much better surroundings on the way into the Taj Mahal and on Elephanta Island in Mumbai.

On arrival you almost have to fight your way through people trying to sell you stuff. Here is where Reading the national cricketnews worked like a charm: they changed from pushy people into the most friendly guys. Explaining us that cricket is a religiën here. Not buying anything we left, with the guys wishing us a honest 'have fun'. On... More
