Monkey Temple (Galta Ji), Jaipur

3.8
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.

  • Very beautiful temple of Hanuman is dedicated. On the way there, one meets many monkeys and the views over Jaipur is super. Should I take with in any case, if one is already in Jaipur!

  • A surreal, wonderful place. It seems to be on a movie set, with monkeys everywhere. Together with the Taj Mahal, this is the best thing I've seen in India.  more »
  • A must in this fantastic country. We made the tour with a very special local guide who even entered a BBC program. A true ambassador of Indian culture and that transported us to another civilization. ...  more »

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.
