One of the favourite places I visited while in India. Beautiful buildings, although sad to see they have not been looked after. For me there was just something special about being there, like a glimpse of past life. It was very peaceful. Loved the cheeky monkeys! We were taken through by a guide who started chatting to us in the... More

you must look for the Monkey master/whisperer who goes there every day. He will make your trip more magical than you can imagine. He calls the monkeys and makes it easy to have them sit on you and interact with you. Such a place of beauty and sacred feel. A must go to place...

We walked up this temple, so not by car, and on the way we saw many monkeys. Upon entering the temple area we saw many monkeys playing and swimming in one of the pools - really nice to see. Walking further there was a bigger natural pool where many boys were taking a bath, swimming, jumping, laughing. Really nice to... More

Nice stop on the way to Jaipur. The ruins aren't well maintained but they are beautiful none the less. There are plenty of monkeys.

From all the reviews, I thought there would be tons and tons of monkeys. There weren't as many as I thought and they were quite friendly. I didn't see or experience any bad interactions with the monkeys. They didn't swarm us. The temples were visually stunning and we went into them. Ladies cannot wear shorts or tank tops in the...

The fun begins right away at the monkey temple with one group of guys trying to sell peanuts to feed the monkeys with and another offering to be guides to keep the monkeys away - don't bother with either the monkeys have little or no interest in their human visitors. The walk up to the temple could be really nice... More

Quite dirty,but beautiful for looking at the temple and the little pond,where locals go for dive in it and to take shower as it said that its a holy water and considered as the water of Ganges.Of course the temple have plenty of monkeys.Not very fond of them but kids with us,enjoyed them looking and seeing them jumping everywhere.

Stopped by the monkey temple en route from jaipur to agra and really enjoyed it. There were many people bathing in the water that is said to come through the mountain from the ganges I believe and people were very welcoming as we were the only foreigners present. Michael (the self proclaimed monkey master) called us over and chatted to... More
