Nothing better than seeing animals in a natural environment. The temple was beautiful. Full of 'little details' everywhere. The paintings from hundreds of years ago were something else. A definite must if in the Jaipur area. Small charge for entry and another small charge if you want to use your camera - worth every rupee! Would love to go back.

We were so excited when we saw our first group of monkeys, but the farther up the steps we went, the more there were. They were just lazing around and grooming each other. Great photo ops. We walked into a patch of grass where baby monkeys were playing, and one of them jumped on my back. They were so cute!... More

Brings lots of treats! Be mindful and know these are monkeys. Otherwise have fun feeding them and letting them crawl all over you!

Be aware that these animals are wild and are use to being fed they will steal the bags of food of you if you don't watch them. Also don't pay over the odds from the sellers of the nuts!! But it's a wonderful place to go.

Must see for Hindu devotees. I first time saw so many monkeys at a public place, they are so many in numbers and yes, they are too much naughty. But I’m sure you are going to enjoy it a lot like I did. I would say it is a place where you can have some fun after visiting such historical... More

We visited here with our 4 year old Son and we had a great couple of hours. The temple and the surrounding area is absolutely beautiful and would be worth a visit even if you weren't interested in the monkeys. The monkeys are fab and you can get really close tot hem. They are so cheeky and mischevious. We had... More

Carry some bananas or you can buy them just outside the temple. Be careful while feeding the monkeys. Their number increases in geometric progression as soon as they see food.

What an amazing day it was to spend time with the animals and premises The monkeys are hilarious and never seem to get full despite our constant feeding. The surrounding rock formations are breath taking and it's very tranquil there as well. Go in the late afternoon it is the best time for it!!!

A great experience of the eastern edge of Jaipur. Some of the most glorious views of Jaipur is to be enjoyed around the temples. Be sure to take some pictures and maybe get some nuts for all the monkeys around. Sitting here just before sunset with truly great views over Jaipur is a truly memorable experience

this is a little gem we went at dawn and the place was empty save for the holy men doing their prayers and the 3000 monkeys who hang around the temple
