Noting to see here.... The top has a nice vieuw over jaipur but that's it. Not worth youre time. Basically it's a run down ruïn inhabitat by lots of monkeys, goats, cows and very poor people.

The monkey temple is very famous in jaipur .I personally recommend to visit this place early in the morning and enjoy the peaceful sunrise. The famous documentary "monkey thieves" was shot here on the monkey of the galta ji temple

Had kept my expectations low thinking that it would be an ordinary temple, I was taken by surprise here! There is something special about this place. Almost 20-25 minutes of walk up the hill from Galtaji gate, you will be definitely encountered with hundreds of monkeys before you reach your destination. Nah,don't expect them to be sweet little animals. They... More

Unfortunately the visit to this temple was very off putting due to the stench,rubbish strewn all around and the horrible flies, a problem which was exacerbated by the monkeys being fed.

Took our time and had some great pictures of them on my shoulder / sitting etc. Took a guide with us who kept an eye on the monkeys if the started to miss behave. If the... More

It's a fantastic place to visit. There are a lot of monkeys but the best are the people and the lakes.

If you enjoy Monkeys and a trip down into a Mountain Canyon then this is highly recommended. The Monkeys are very playful and friendly but may jump if you have food, so be wary. Once you reach the bottom of the canyon at the Monkey Temple itself you will be hit with a 150 rupee fee to take photos on... More

Speechless. Had peanuts to feeding monkeys. Adults would take a peanut with one hand and hold my hand with the other while they ate the peanut. Juveniles and toddlers would sit in my lap or climb on my back. I was not expecting to be so deeply moved by this experience. Highly recommend.

Complete lack of monkeys on our visit here, we saw more at the Taj Mahal! It was a festival that day so there was loud music and perhaps that was scaring away the monkeys? Monkeys aside, the temple grounds was a let down as there was rubbish everywhere. Even in the bathing pools. Was such a shame to see. I... More
