The Monkey temple is a bit of a drive outside of the main part of Jaipur. In fact the drive itself is very nice as you pass through some old parts of Jaipur and then through some forests before arriving at the temple. There is a series of Hindu temples inside the complex and someone trying to coax you in... More

Nice place to visit and see the temple between trees and rocks. But the pond is not clean and not maintained properly. Narrow road and no traffic on road. Less crowded. If you have enough time, you can plan to visit this place.

We didn't know it was there but the taxi driver suggested a visit. Buy some bananas beforehand. Be prepared for monkeys to clamber all over you, the cows go and do as they wish and there are some pigs also. Highlight? - I got the chance to hold a cobra

I love this place. There are many monkey at this place. The monkey will not harm or do any thing to people who visit here. Just you have to take some biscuit or chana to give them to eat . I really love this place..

We went here mainly for the kids as they really wanted to see the monkeys. The place was pretty deserted when we went, and it was very dirty. It was quite funny to see the monks that were there playing cricket in the entry courtyard. We were pretty amazed at the vistas, but also that people would actually come here... More

The temple located between two sides of a valley, in the entrance you should buy peanuts for feed the monkey. Be aware, they take every thing like your bottle of water or any fruit that you have. actually the sit or jump on your sholder

Really enjoyed my visit to the Monkey Temple. The approach is through what signs proclaim to be a "deep forest area" and indeed I saw monkeys, cows, wild boars, and peacocks. The temple itself is dilapidated and filthy, which somehow helps create a certain sense of charm appropriate for a place that's given over to dozens or even hundreds of... More

We stopped at the monkey temple and really enjoyed seeing the monkeys at the temple. Many people were hand feeding them, but had been advised not to touch them. It does look a bit shabby but is worth a short visit.
