We visited the hanuman ji temple in the afternoon. There was not much rush, and we had a very good darshan. The energy level of the temple is such, that we stayed in the temple for 45 minutes. Felt very peaceful and would like to go back when I visit Jaipur. Jai bajrang bali.

Khole ke Hanumanji temple is worshiped by devotees on daily basis. The temple premises is clean with main deity of Hanumanji in half lying position, whereas other Devi/Devta are also there on 1st to 3rd floors. The area is beautifully surrounded by hills/trees and nature. The temple has Chhatries and Halls to rest if you come from distance. The temple has 22 Kitchens and dinning place in front of these in the halls on three floors, where relatives/friends of person offering Sava Mani can dine on floor or table /chairs. The Savamoni is actually offering of 50kg (40 seers make one Man earlier days) of food . Food consist of Baati(2 types), Churma(2 Types), Kadhi, Dal, Mirch pickle, Papad, Khichri/rice pulao.The food is awesome prepared in Sudha Desi Ghee.
You have to book savamani in advance and all arrangements can be made by temple kitchen people from making to serving.
It was an expering worth remembering.

I have been in Jaipur for almost two decades but my wish to visit this temple some how or other never materialized till recently when we made a family visit on our eldest son's birth day,
I am not a very religious man in the literary meaning but Lord Hanuman is a deity that helps me spiritually at remembrance.

The visit to the place charmed me with its picturesque scenery, majestic architecture and a hill top view of Jaipur.

Inside the temple with its normal clatter and clank, I could close my eyes in prayer for my family. It was strange .... all sounds died away and as if I was with Lord Hanuman without uttering a word. I soon came out and stood quiet for a while in platform balcony, looking at the bluish green mountains. I felt as if the breeze coming from hills was chanting .. "shanti ... shanti ... shanti om!"

Buy peanuts at the entrance, do not be afraid and feed the monkeys. It was so much fun and one of the highlights of the trip. People think that I am crazy that I let the monkeys climb all over me, but I am such an animal lover that I could not resist. The monkeys were very friendly, and just wanted a snack. If they show their teeth, just walk away. Do not make straight eye contact or show your own teeth if they seem like they don't want to play. Also, the temple is absolutely beautiful. I loved it!!!

We came late (almost 5 pm) on a Friday and monkeys were everywhere (I believe there may be a regular feeding event around 4 most days, which would explain that). Pretty neat to see so many all around, and they were not aggressive, probably because many had either just eaten or were still hanging around finishing their chapati and looking rather satisfied, so no need to harass the visitors. :) We were surprised by the guy who chased us down at the entrance to pay 50 rupees per camera (but that aligned with the signs we had missed at the entrance so we did not protest too much). Then made the mistake of following another young man into the first white temple on the right in the complex. After telling him we were not paying he said he was not a guide and of course would not stop talking to us while we tried to look around in peace. Before we knew it he was saying prayers to us and tying the sacred strings on our wrist and then finally the demand for 100 rupees per person as a donation. I knew that was coming and it's always awkward to get out of it. My husband folded up one 100 rupee note and offered it just to get out and then we were hounded about paying more, but refused and left feeling annoyed. (I've been working in India for 20 years so it's not like this situation is new to me...) We then were careful not to enter any more temples and just wandered through the complex heading up to the top gradually. There were lots of flies everywhere and discarded bits of food on the ground from the monkeys, so kind of a mess at various points but there are some really interesting viewpoints as well and you feel like you are off the main tourist trail. When we descended and left, the guy at the first temple and his friend came running out to accost us and complain that the 100 rupee note my husband had left for him was "broken" (it had a bit of a rip on it). I had no more patience at that time and told him we did not have any more so he could either keep that one or give it back to us and we'd be on our way. He kept it and we left.

Family of five from the UK. We visited the sanctuary late afternoon to avoid the worst of the heat.

Galta was about thirty minutes drive from out hotel. Distance was not more than 10km.

The trip into the hills was interesting in itself, passing through some lovely villages and we saw dozens of peacocks on the way up.

The sanctuary itself is a progression of buildings and ponds/ water tanks up to the summit of a hill. The top of the hill provides a fantastic view of Jaipur.

We bought some food for the monkeys and gave a modest donation to the temple on the way in. From there it was a case of slowly ascending the hill, enjoying the company of the monkeys as we went. The climb is very gentle and easy to manage. There are thousands of monkeys, they are clearly used to people and easy to get close to. My eight year old daughter was fit to burst with excitement.

At the very top is a temple dedicated to the sun god. The view across Jaipur and to lion fort and Amber fort from here were fantastic.

On the way down we went into the monkey temple itself. There is a rock shaped (supposedly) like the monkey god which is the reason for the temple complex.

All in all a good family trip.

Must-go place for followers of Hanuman-ji. This place is known as Khol ki hanuman ji ka Mandir. Get some peras, and offer puja. Take some photos of the beautiful location amidst the hills. Although did not see many tourists.

It is a real shame - this could be a wonderful and beautiful site as long as it was maintained properly by the local temples but instead they choose to leave the place to rot and there are flies, mosquitoes and rotten food everywhere. We saw shoes, underwear and other disgusting things just laying around.
The temple people are pressuring you to give donations but you can't see where the money is being spent because it certainly isn't the maintenance of this place. Disgraceful and shameful.

The monkeys are wild so be careful - they're cute and lovely but wild, so they'll snatch things from you :)

Me and my family visited Lord Hanuman Ji temple. It is very old hanuman Mandir. Jaipur Development Authority has undertaken the Project for development of Khole Ke Hanuman ji. The foundation laying ceremony of this Project was done by the Hon'ble Chief Minister of Rajasthan.

I went to this place after watching the show Monkey Thieves on TV but found out that this temple looks much better on reel than real. Not a religious person so this visit was not so fruitful.
