Monkey Temple (Galta Ji), Jaipur

3.5
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.

  • It is a peaceful place, a bit dirty, because of the monkeys everywhere, but it is worth it. There are lots of monkeys. You can give them bananas or cookies. Dont get to close to them or see them at their eyes. There are many "tiny temples" where the "gurus" say mantras for life, love, health. Also ask for money as a donation for them.
  • Very nice Temple in the mid of forest and mountain, 1000's of Monkey comes here in the morning time, really too good and must visit place in Jaipur. another at the top you can see the Galta Srishi Ji temple , in down many temples are there . in Hanuman ji Temple there is Lamp (glowing) from 500 years. Best time to visit is early morning 6 to 9 or evening 4 to 6
  • DO NOT go here. Dirty and nothing to see. Monkeys aren't cute, just a little scary. Really, stay clear!
  • Photo coming great here..
  • Dirty place with aggressive beggars
