Monkey Temple (Galta Ji), Jaipur

(3.9/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Despite the heat has given us this place a content smile on the lips spirited. The monkey swim, dive, jump in the water, play, relax, etc. That was pretty amusing. The water smells a bit, there is dirt and a few quirky characters.

  • Indeed, countless monkeys live, but standing around too many Indians who want to abocken money for various reasons by the tourists: one tells one on the cheek, the other wants to paint a red dot on the forehead, again another invitert in a temple, others want to sell Greens for the cows and tell your karma is this better if you feed cows and so on.
