Great place to visit if you love animals! Really enjoyed watching the monkeys swinging in the trees, chasing each other & frolicking in the water. The setting is quite beautiful as well. Definitely worth a visit. I'm told it's particularly beautiful after the rainy season. We visited when it was very dry and there were still plenty of monkeys. There... More

The reviews here on TripAdvisor are very mixed... More

you shouldn't expect enjoyment at a place which is for religious purpose. It is not well maintained. you can see a lot of monkeys. They never hurt you is the legend.

We were already aware that there was no fee to go up to the temple, but that there was a 50 rupee camera charge. There is... More

Dedicated to the Hindu gods is this temple situated in the aravali hills at a distance from about 10-12 kms from the main city. The place has a great architecture with excellent reflections in the pond l, which is very dirty and really needs to be cleaned.. something not good about the Hindu worship is the mess it creates around...

Its a very famous holy place in Jaipur with natural beauty. Here are huge number of monkey. A water pond namely Galta Kund... unstoppable water comes from Gau Mukh. Please avoid the city side entrance and go via Sisodiya Garden-Ghat Ke Balaji..

Disappointing, semi derelict collection of badly mantained buildings, manned by dubious characters .....we couldn't,t wait to get out of there ! If you do go make sure your driver takes you over the hills to the the temp!e complex carpark and waits for you ( 30 mins), it you are dropped on the city side you have a strenuous climb... More
