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.

  • One of the most fascinating places seen for now. It is true is dirty but the architecture of the place pays back widely. Not to mention the cute monkeys, and entertainment of the local bathing suit in the sacred spring. At the entrance a holy man will catch you and in return for blessing, picturesque as well that will inspire you some money but this is india.
