Private Half-Day Tour of Jaipur and the Monkey...
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Located in a quiet ravine at the head of a valley, the Monkey Palace is a pleasant visit for animal lovers and those who appreciate ornate architecture in a peaceful setting. There were fewer monkeys than we expected, which was good as we had envisaged swarms of them climbing over us. They are very cute and, during our visit, well-behaved and unobtrusive.

The monkey temple has its name only because it (mostly the way uphill to it) is indeed overrun by monkeys. You can take very close pictures of them or even buy some nuts and feed them yourself, but do take care as they can steal purses, scarves and the like very quickly, and be careful about monkey bites. The temple itself is more like a small hut at the top pf the hill with nothing special besides a good view to the city.

This temple is a waste of time. The road up is run down and full of monkeys which you would expect. The main attraction about this temple is to feed the monkeys! However, I did not come to India to see monkeys. If you are not willing to leave some money in the temple you cannot go there.

Not worth a visit! I went up to the monkey temple and found not much there, other than a decent view across Jaipur from the small temple itself. For the rest, it was incredibly run down with pigs and monkeys everywhere, most of which were sick or scrounging for food. The 'holy man' was hucking in the corner which was most unpleasant, and other than that, there's really not much to see after a long walk up and a long walk down. So give it a skip!

Walking up to the Monkey Temple you are greeted by many monkeys. As you climb the hill up the cobbled path so your views become better and better. Take your time to walk along the hill past the temple it is quite and peaceful. Sunsets are the best time. I walked for over an hour along the hill and found other incredible ancient ruins.
