Monkey Temple (Galta Ji), Jaipur

3.0
At Monkey Temple (Galta Ji), see how thousands of devotees complete their pilgrimage by bathing in the temples' sacred water tanks, or kunds. When you reach this holy place, ascend the crevasse, pass the highest water pool, and head toward the hilltop temple from which you can take in views of the entire valley. Notice how each temple features a number of pavilions with ornamented rounded roofs, intricately carved pillars, and painted walls. Visit the natural spring from which waterfalls pour down into seven pools used for sacred rituals. Friendly monkeys inhabit the place, but take care of your personal belongings, since they have a knack for theft. To plan Jaipur vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
