Expected tons of monkeys frolicking in the water collecions. That wasnt the case. Though the monkeys on the way to the temple itself were really cute and adorable. Best to do it at sunset for the great views otherwise if you dont jave time to squeeze into your trip dont stress

Avoid at all costs even if you are religious. Filthy place. So sad that important religious sites are not kept well ..........

I enjoyed watching the monkeys and seeing the views from the top of the pass. It is worth taking care of your belongings as the monkeys are acquisitive!

We first came to see monkeys from very close but we saw much more : we happily discovered some interesting Hindi temples, and saw religious people having a ritual bath. It's not far from Jaipur and even the way to get there was worth it.

I had quick visit of monkey temple where monkey roam around freely without making harm. You can feed them by buying peanuts at entrance. 30 min visit should be good.

Despite degradation and lack of conservation. The temple is still today a place of worship for the locals. It is possible to see believers bathing in the still and dirty waters of the ancient baths. The temple is ruled by "saints" - men who forsake their families and their whole lives to devote themselves to religion.

Lots of walk on slippery stones to reach the place. Nice views over Jaipur city and the surroundings.

My husband and I climbed to the top to see the temple and it was quite a walk getting hassled most of the way with folks selling things. There's a collection of monkeys at the top, bottom and all along the climb up. The temple at the top isn't that inspiring and you're requested to make a donation, what for... More

Before we went our driver and guide stopped at a local market to pick up some bananas. We would advise doing this as we were able to feed the spider monkeys on the way to the temple as well as the normal temple monkeys. This is a relatively short visit where you can feed a troop of monkeys and visit... More
