The temple site is on the eastern edge of Jaipur and it was a wonderful place to visit. We entered the site through an arched gate and it is quite a walk so have enough with you to drink before heading up to the temple; there were two shops near this gate (selling drinks, nuts, etc.). The path ascends and... More

Other reviewers complain that this temple is neglected and dirty. Fair comment but that could be part of the attraction. The only compulsory charge is 50 rupees (50 pence) for the use of your camera but a contribution towards upkeep is suggested. It's worth getting the Monkey Man to accompany you, he provides pea nuts for you to feed to... More

Our driver stopped here , to show us this Temple where many monkey live.He organised the Monkey whisperer man to walk in the temple with us, as these monkeys have a mind of their own and need some discipline, and they actually listen to him. He tells them to jump in the water and swim and they do this on... More

I don't know why the good things are at the top of hills! Be prepared for a bit of a hike up and down hills...it isn't too hard as the road is paved and winds it's way up,so the slope isn't as steep as it could have been.There are a load of macaques on the way up,but they are fairly... More

it's worth to go to Monkey Temple (rent a motorbike) after visiting Jaipur. you will pass more rural areas and nice building complexes on the way. temple is out of the city and gives you opportunity to relax after city noise. although buildings are not maintained well, they are very interesting. we could access many rooms and wander around. after...

This is my favourite place in Jaipur. It's not as popular as City palace and forts, and it's really sanctuary for locals. The atmosphere will absorb you.

We felt like Mowgli from the Disney movie "The Jungle Book". We saw this place on the Discovery channel and informed our private guide we wanted to visit and loved it! I am sure the Jungle Book based the scene were the monkeys lived, in this temple. Lots of monkeys and obviously a couple of cows too.

There are only a few kilometers to go, but it's worth it. You can make a few good photos. The overall impression of the system seems a little neglected. Be careful of Monkeys
