Owner description: Galtaji Temple, Jaipur A pre-historic Hindu pilgrimage site, the Galtaji Temple, is located only 10km away from Jaipur. One of the jewels of Jaipur, the temple complex encompasses natural fresh water springs and 7 holy 'kunds' or water tanks. Among these kunds, the 'Galta Kund', is the holiest one and is believed to never get dry.

This is such a lovely place to go! It's approx 20 mins from Jaipur but it's definitely worth it. Tens of monkeys live there and you can buy nuts to feed them at the entrance. It's also full of pilgrims bathing or praying.

When I was there I also saw a snake charmer...not exactly my cup of tea but interesting to see.

The temple has very positive vibes about it. You have to be fit and able to climb a lot of steps though. There is also a place where a sadhu used to do penance - you climb up the steps on the left when you are facing Galta Ji. There is a tunnel (surang) which they have now sealed. It seems all the people who tried exploring the tunnel never returned.

Visited this place on a small outing/picnic with friends. It was very disappointing to see the pond and temple being so dirty,absolutely no maintenance. Though a small consolation came in the form of numerous peacocks,parrots and other beautiful birds and a number of monkeys. The old architecture makes for a fine backdrop. But,if one skips this place from their itinerary it wont be much of a loss,there are a lot other amazing places to visit in and near Jaipur.

Went there just before sunset on the 21st Dec 2012. There were over 200 monkeys all around us! We also spotted lots of peacocks and parrots along the way. But beware, the temple and pond itself is pretty dirty and stinks, but the overall experience is quite memorable.

The gorge is a very nice place to visit in a sunny day. I would go there again, not much to see, but a lot to discover.
