Granted I only had just enough time to arrive, walk up to the area where the women bath, interact with the monkeys for about 15 minutes, then leave with just enough time to get to the airport for my flight back to Bengaluru. But in that short amount of time, I had an unforgettable experience interacting with the monkeys. I... More

Good views if you can get to the top without being hastled to be given a bindi or flowers or paying to take a photo of a cow. Off the beaten track, not that many tourists, it's a working temple.

SUMMATION: This is a really yucky, smelly, run down place, but worth a visit if you liked the TV show “Twilight Zone.” High, poop- and banana peal-covered steps to a large, polluted pond and a temple nestled in a gorge in the mountain. We had little hawker harassment, but were in a large group. Good view from the top, but... More

Disappointing visit. The pictures on the internet sites and tourist maps do not show the true pictures of a run down, dilapidated attraction, with filthy water that I would not put my toe in, never mind swim, like many of the devotees. We were asked for money too, by the temple men for taking photos outside, when it was stated... More

Some of my best photos in India were taken here. Went at around 5PM as the sun was setting & temperature had cooled down. Lots of monkeys (as you would expect), cows with 5 legs & pigs roaming about. I had a guide which I would recommend as the monkeys can be a little cray & unpredictable at times. The... More

This temple is situated in the centre of Jaipur hustle and bustle. We were pointed out twice in the day but did not have the time to visit the temple itself.

Myself & my boyfriend got a tuk-tuk out to the monkey temple whilst staying over in Jaipur. When you first pull up at the bottom of the hill, it can seem a bit lack lustre, lots of cows, dogs, rubbish & people immediately running over to sell you nuts. However, once you walk around 20 metres, that all stops &... More
