If being in close proximity of monkeys, and a lot of them at that, makes you a bit uncomfortable, DO NOT GO. but if you think you can manage that, i would recommend spending a couple of hours here, the monkeys, with their amusing antics provide tremendous photo ops! plus the view from the temple (on the hilltop) is also...

Monkey temple is great, there are monkey's everywhere. I bought monkey food and had a boy as a guide (high school age) who was very knowledgeable - he helped me with the food and took me to the temple. I would recommend going with one of these guides (about 200-300 rupees) as the monkey's sometimes fight with each other or... More

It's different place to visit in jaipur . The best part is the view of the city of from monkey temple. Just be careful carrying any eatables in your hand. There are lot of monkeys on the way and they will snatch any eatables in your hand

Our driver arranged for us to spend an hour with the monkey expert at the temple and we had a wonderful experience. he showed us how to feed the monkeys and explained the hierarchy of the monkeys to us so we could understand their behaviour. He took some amazing photos of us and put us at ease with these wonderful... More

Be very careful of aggressive monkeys.. Take a money teacher with you.. They flip out very quickly.. The temple is ok.. Nice to go somewhere a little different

It is worth visiting it. You will need a guide, a yong boy who lives there and who has been living with the monkeys fos some years and knows how to handle them. You will feed them and visit their house. It was good fun . The views from the temple are pretty

We took an a/c car to Monkey Temple which is a good thing because it is not close to the city. The place is very beautiful and there are monkeys everywhere. You can purchase fruit or peanuts for 30, 40, 50 rupees to feed the monkeys on the way in. I believe the camera fee is 50 rupees per camera.... More

We fed the monkeys monkey nuts and there were really friendly and gentle as they are used to tourists. Was an amazing experience and plus the locals where celebrating... More

- Don't feed the monkeys. Locals feed them in the evening so they get enough food: there is even food just lying around untouched. The monkeys are really tame. Don't believe the local who say you need protection, they just want to sell their services. - Don't forget to visit the temple right before the temple entrance (you'll get a... More
