We enjoyed this visit, only takes 10 mins. The monkeys were a bit lively towards the top, keep food in the car.

Well worth the visit, grab a guide to really learn about the temples there and the bathing rituals for men & women. The monkeys are just a bonus as is their bathing area at the top. Don't do the walking way to get there unless you are fit /enjoy walking !

We were taken around this temple and witnessed the monkeys running down the mountain side for there food, a big bonus is that it doesn't seem to be all that touristy which was great

We enjoyed sunset at the temple but there is a few things that concern me about this spot. Firstly we were hassled at the bottom to buy peanuts and take a guide. Being from South Africa we do not believe in feeding wild animals so we did not take the peanuts. It is a 500m walk and you really don't... More

Certainly a lot of monkeys and worth the walk up the hill, not suitable for those with walking difficulties, as many sections of rough paths

HI we decided to make an extra trip to our day out after seeing the Plant Earth programme it was interesting they definitely did the filming from the only place with flowers which had looked so exotic but was great to see and worth a visit

Good fun to see the cheeky, food-stealing monkeys perform their charming tricks, and the location is interesting, but it might be best to avoid this place on a hot day, as it was pretty smelly when we went on a mild January one. The waters were filthy and there's poo and goodness knows what else everywhere. Having said that, it... More

Went upon friend's recommendation but was already aware that the site had deteriorated in recent times. There is a 50 rupee per camera fee. There wasn't many people hassling you. There is a lot of wildlife. We opted not to feed the monkeys due to health, and they ignored us; they get aggressive if you approach without food. The locals... More

Our Tuk Tuk drive took us to this spot on morning, which at first seemed OK, but as soon as we got off the Tuk Tuk, the young children where everywhere, wanting us to buy bananas and nuts to feed to the Monkey's, which we did and they lasted 2 mins, they wanted us to buy more and more, but...

Nice to go and feed the monkeys , it can be a bit intimidating with guides and hoards of children all wanting to show you around for a fee ofcourse, we didn't stay for long just enough to give the monkeys a huge bunch of bananas then we did a hasty retreat
