“a case of 'loosing the plot'!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013

Wow, this was a superb place to visit & with a great atmosphere. But the monks were something else! I bought some flowers wrapped in banana leaves as a devotion. They were wrapped with cotton thread & I wasn't allowed to touch them, In complete contrast, the monks had their masks under their chins (perhaps they were off duty?) so I think had 'lost the plot a bit'. You had to giggle (very quietly of course!)
All in all, a really interesting place with great views & wonderful carvings. One of the 'must sees' of India. The road too & from it is also worth the trip going from the sandy plains of the Thar desert up to the green slopes full of crops & turbanned farmers loading ox carts. Fabulous for photographs.

“Magical”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

It is just not easy to define this beautiful monument you have to see it to believe it it's magical.
it's so peace full and calm i would recommend every one who is visiting Rajasthan that your trip will not be complete if you don't visit this part of Rajasthan .only thing which can be irritating is the monkeys they can be very rude to you so be carefull.
