I really enjoyed visiting the monkey temple in Jaipur. It's a cool place to explore, and I love watching the monkeys and how they interact with each other. I had the chance to have them jump up on my shoulders, it was lots of fun. I wish I could have read more about the history of the temple before going.... More

The visit to Galta's sacred tanks where the monkeys can be found was well prepared.On our journey from Jaipur to Agra we stopped here and in order to have enough time for the visit we left Jaipur a bit earlier than usual.It was a good decision .The story says that a sage lived here and today there are two main...

A 15 min walk. A dirty place. There are monks who want to rip you off and get paid for their prayers. Lots of poor people around and full of monkeys, cows, dogs.

Located between rocks of a rocky valley, Galta is a lonely place that entwines with nostalgic feelings. It is also known as Hanuman Temple. There you will meet hundreds of monkeys, arrogant and aggressive macaques and more welcoming and tolerable langurs. You can buy peanuts at the entrance and feed them, but be ready for a surrounding crowd of monkeys... More

There is quite a walk from the bottom where the tuktuk takes you to the top, so just be aware of that, especially if it is as hot and sunny as it was when I went. There are a few reasons I am rating this highly: the nice views over the city, the total lack of other tourists/people (yippee!), and... More

Its not a far ride from jaipur, easy to reach with car. Its an interesting place where a lot of monkeys are being fed by locals. The monkeys are very interested in what you have to offer them and like to eat from your hand. Locals come here to bath in the holy temple. The temple is located within a... More

But totally worth it. The drive to the foot of the hill and the walk up with monkeys, pigs, goats, cattle and people was well worth it.

Took a tuck tuck which although remote and not really on the main Jaipur tourist route, was very pleasant and we stopped off at the Sisodia Rani Bag (not worth a journey in its own right). Despite my respect for monkeys which in my experience can be be quite aggressive, the monkeys here are so well fed and revered, there... More

Maybe not every ones cup of tea but I loved this place. Spent 2hrs here, wandering while interacting with and feeding the monkeys. Living in a country that has no wild life, I enjoy this type of experience. The monkeys were very gentle, appearing not aggressive at all with human contact they were receiving. We took a local quide with... More
