Cool experience

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... read 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

The temple is up the small hill, so you have to walk about 15 - 25 minutes. There are lots of monkey on the road up, but in my opinion they are not dangerous. Maybe the old ones a little. I gave some peanuts to small monkey and they were very friendly. The temple is like the temple.

We arrived in time to watch sunset. It's a real non tourist spot. Relaxed wander up the cobbled meandering track amongst monkeys, dogs, goats and pigs. Put your shoes in the alcove and shut the door when you get to the temple to ensure the monkeys don't make off with them. It was quiet and no one harassed us. The... More

It doesn't worth at all: dirty, careless, naughty monkeys, stray dogs, poor people... There are many things to do and to see in Jaipur much more better than visit this abandon city

We arrived later in the afternoon so we missed the main monkey activity inside the centre so I would recommend to start noon or before. It takes 30 to 40 minutes to walk all the way in. The entire walk is very exciting with wonderful views looking out over the city from high above. The monkeys, cows, pigs and birds... More

An absolutely beautiful drive and very cheap to visit, however the minute we walked in we were hounded by a guide who calls himself the "monkey whisperer" who then took over our visit. We were looking forward to exploring by ourselves and he took our peanuts for the monkeys off us and our camera and commandeered them so we couldn't... More
