Monkey Temple (Galta Ji), Jaipur

3.8
#5 of 21 in Historic Sites in Jaipur
Landmark Religious Site
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.

  • Environment very nice wooded and mountainous and there are several sets of temples, then you go to a temple where a woman is giving you his blessing in Exchange for a few rupees, but you can jump to climb above all and continue to reach the epicenter of failure, where there are several temples and all full of monkeys. Caution If you are taking food that are uploaded! And Darling to take anything out of the backpack that steal you, you not emotions in touch them if they do not come because they are on the defensive. When we were in addition they were Festival and Indians and Indian bathing in one of the temples and other bathing monkeys. I loved it.

  • The site itself could be incredible, but between that it is full of dirt and everyone who is out there is trying to take advantage of you, because it is in a place where not I've felt nothing comfortable. A shame!

  • Although it is in an area not city we visited came across us very interesting inside the temple with a person who explained to us the details of the same monkeys in contrast to other sites are not aggressive to recommend to go up to the top where the pools are located

Where to stay in Jaipur

With a big selection of budget and mid-range hotels, Jaipur serves as an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Many taxi and rickshaw drivers aggressively push their choice of hotels on unwitting tourists--if you refuse their suggestions, they might double the fare. To avoid this inconvenience, book your room ahead and call the hotel to arrange for a pickup--many offer shuttle services to and from the train and bus station.
