Galtaji Temple, Jaipur
(3.3/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
Built within Aravalli Hills with natural freshwater springs and seven holy water tanks, Galtaji Temple offers lush landscape and sweeping views of Jaipur. With their curved roofs, wall paintings, and carved pillars, the spectacular 18th-century structures made of pink sandstone resemble a palace more than a Hindu temple. Also called the "Monkey Temple," the complex stands bounded by dense trees and bushes, and features shrines to Ram, Krishna, and Hanuman--as well as a resident community of rhesus macaques. Of the seven tanks filled by water flowing from a rock shaped like cow's head, the holiest one is believed to never run dry. Put Galtaji Temple into our Jaipur itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • it is not at all maintained properly. The water has become dirty over years and it is not at all attractive. 
  • Go ahead! Change of scenery! Another world... colors and traditions mingle with brio. We had a guide who very well explained the history and the purpose of this site. We had a lovely time and have not been solicited for donations, since we were accompanied by a local. You can find young people very seriously that would be happy to take you there for a few rupees (ask at the small grocery store-bar just before the entrance on the right). Do not invade the apes but not fear because they are rather friendly and know perfectly well that you have peanuts (purchased at the entrance to the site) Attention: you have to walk to access to temples and ponds. And there are pretty climbs not very passable, so preferable hiking shoes! Do the morning to enjoy the colors and avoid the heat. We were very hot, even in November.
