“Monkey GOD (Hanuman Temple)!!”
Reviewed 7 February 2012

A must visit again if you are in Simla. it reflects on hindu mythology and its significant character called Hanuman (monkey god). I like the spiritual aspect of this place, firstly is situated on the top most mountain in Simla, which makes it hard to reach. secondly, its a place filled with monkeys all around, some friendly and some not so friendly! lastly, it has a beautiful view of the town and of course it does hold tallest statue of Lord Hanuman in India!

“Worth the climb”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

As I visited when it was snowing, there were no taxis going way up there. The trek was treacherous and scenic, at the same time. I took some pictures I am really proud of.
Please carry an umbrella if it is snowing. It will save you the rent of Rs.10 on the sticks you need to drive the monkeys away. If you have touched the feet of the statue, don't grudge an offering. May your faith ease your trek. Last but not the least, don't look back and/or down.

“Good Place and Location”
Reviewed 25 January 2012

Good Place and Location but the place can do with some renovation and some Maintenance considering this place is such a famous Tourist destination.
Otherwise, it really seems surreal as if may be in the earliest Hours Lords themselves come down and hold court.
