we went here by mistake in and out so quickly !!! smell is awful, super dirty, monkeys, flies, cows, rotten food everywhere, full of local people, they charge you for every camera if you are a foreigner, although the attraction is free. And there is nothing to see Skip it !

Much like most of the places we have been so far...it seems like everyone wants money. This place is really cool and uniquely set in a very nice hillside. The monkeys are cute and the young ones are really fun to watch. We planned on going into this place without a guide or our driver. Within the first 30 seconds... More

It's really a very nice walk amidst old temples, and lots of monkeys. Buy a few bags of peanuts at the bottom of the hill and be careful, the monkeys will grab and tear (happened to me TWICE!! Ha!) your bag when you are distracted feeding them. The highlight of the walk is a rundown temple with like a huge... More

Amazing place. Not crowded with tourists. Beautiful we were lucky enough to be there at the moment a leopard was chasing the monkeys on one of the nearby hills. The monkeys are usually friendly, you don't have to pay anyone to protect you from the monkeys, as one of the guys at the entrance will try to convince you, do... More

you walk up hill and then back down. for about 40 mins. the temples and area around them are quite dirty. there's monkeys everywhere so be careful of your belongings. there's also pigs and goats. free to visit. there are men at the start of the trail trying to get you to pay for a guide. we always say no

One of the most beautiful temples I've ever visited in India, extremely dirty and filthy, so make sure to wear trainers. Don't feed the monkeys! Ever! Or 100 will crawl over you to get the food!

Entertaining visit but be careful as they are wild animals but used to human contact. It is best to have a guide who knows which monkeys can be trusted. Unusually, some enjoys swimming, not unusually they all beg nuts etc..

Our wonderful guide from Raj Tours (book on TA) took us here. He dropped us at the back entrance which might be why we had a better experience than most. You just can't skip such an interesting place - even if the monkeys are obviously in charge of the temple. There were caretakers of the property around that seemed just... More
