The Money Temple !!

Monkeys and monkeys everywhere you go. Though there are many of them they are not a problem at all. They do not grab anything from your hands. (well behaved .. hehehe)

It is a bit far from the city and you will require at least half day to visit this place. Lot of monkeys. Religious people may like it very much as it has historic significance.

Lovely situation in a ravine, within a forest. Deer in the forest, herds of cattle on the main road, monkeys in the temple, but they can leap on you if you have bananas. The Hindu temples are for the devout locals. Some peacocks.

We were advised to take a guide who said he would protect us from the monkeys, but we didn't believe him. You are made to feel obliged to but peanuts to feed them. They might take,glasses,phones etc though wen we went they were not very active until we started to undo nuts and put them on the temple step (as... More

A lot of monkeys and they are fairly friendly. The monkeys are very picky what you give them to eat. The staff is asking for money but no need to give. Just enjoy the monkeys

The Monkey temple is a bit of a drive outside of the main part of Jaipur. In fact the drive itself is very nice as you pass through some old parts of Jaipur and then through some forests before arriving at the temple. There is a series of Hindu temples inside the complex and someone trying to coax you in... More

Nice place to visit and see the temple between trees and rocks. But the pond is not clean and not maintained properly. Narrow road and no traffic on road. Less crowded. If you have enough time, you can plan to visit this place.

We didn't know it was there but the taxi driver suggested a visit. Buy some bananas beforehand. Be prepared for monkeys to clamber all over you, the cows go and do as they wish and there are some pigs also. Highlight? - I got the chance to hold a cobra
