Out of the tourist circuits, is empty of people, but full of monkeys, and you must take care of them. A very good place to take pictures, and very courious temple.

Easy to get a tuk tuk through the old part of Jaipur to this temple where there are lots of monkeys, cows, goats, birds etc. There was an Indian wedding while we were there and we were thrilled to be invited to join in. The walk up to the temple is a bit of a feat especially if you have trouble with stairs/uphill but it is still worth seeing from the bottom while your fitter friends climb to the top for the spectacular views.

So, the story is that the rock of the cliff face around which this temple is built looks like Hanuman. I saw the painting over the top that didn't follow the shape of the rock at all, and the painting was cool. I didn't see the monkey in the rock. Oh, and the monk wanted the equivalent of $40 donation for explaining to us that there's a monkey shape in the rock.

I believe these monkeys were gentler than others experienced later on our trip. Still be mindful as they can be aggressive and hiss. They frolic about and can be territorial. I was delighted.

This temple was so fun, monkeys roaming around all over the place. So much to see goats, birds, monkeys, hogs. It's very steep and a lot of walking is involved so be prepared for this. Lots of beggars around, snake charmers were quite entertaining tho.
