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

I've read some of the other reviews which made negative comments about the Galwar Bagh, and I had a completely different experience. We arrived late in the afternoon after our taxi driver got lost (another story), but once there, we were asked to pay a small entrance fee (based on the number of cameras you have) Maybe to verify claims...

We thoroughly enjoyed the stop and are highly recommending it to anyone going back. The monkeys were part of the fun, but the whole temple grounds echo with a history that must have been overwhelmingly beautiful and spiritual. The touts are annoying and persistent here, which was a shame.
