The temple is actually quite small and you have to climb a very steep hill to get to it. Unfortunately we were there around noon time and there were no monkeys at all inside or around the temple.

The temple is a bit far away from main city in Aravali Hills. The locals visit here for religious purpose, but this is a good picnic spot. You will love this place in winter and during monsoon. There are so many monkeys here, therefore it is also called temple of monkeys

There was a man born in the temple who grew up with the monkeys and can communicate with them and knows each monkey by name.he now works as a tour guide and commands the monkeys to carry out his will. He can make the monkeys sit on you for a photo. But actually a beautiful temple and loads of wee... More

Either this temple is in ruins or its rundown. The monkeys are all over the place which was frightening to me. Monkeys are able to utilize the pool of water that the men and women bathe in which leaves a little to be desired. Some of the monkeys are aggressive not only with humans but with each other as well.

Even thought this is difficult to get to, this is a must see. We had a great time watching the monkeys jumping off the high roofs into the deep pool

So basically you walk up a hill to a small temple which affords excellent views over the city. You do not need a guide or monkey protector. If you keep your nuts in your bag and only take out a couple at a time you will not get mobbed. If you don't want them to come near they won't as... More

You arrive at the entrance if you come the right way - no walking. Our driver found the "caretaker" to show us through which was brilliant. He organised the 50 rupee camera fee per camera and got us safely interacting with the monkeys. They were everywhere and very cheeky but they knew him and followed his orders. He saved several...

I went to the monkey temple a little after 4 p.m. which was great because the temple is quite outside of town and it takes a while to get there and we still had the sunny but cool air of the evening. Visiting the temple is free but if you wanna take a phone or camera, they will cost you... More

When we visited the monkey temple a second time we discovered that there are two entrances. The first time our taxi driver dropped us off at the side which involves a steep climb (rewarded with a beautiful view of the city) and a very steep and slippery path down to the entrance of the temple. Going steady it will take... More
