“Quiet and Peaceful but Lots of Monkeys”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

It's a long uphill walk from the mall but very quiet and peaceful and you can enjoy the valley veiw as you go up. At the temple there are a lots of monkeys looking for sweets (parsad) from strangers/tourists. It is an on foot trip from the mall worth taking.

“Monkeys!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2012

There are lots of aggressive monkeys here, who will stick their hands into your pockets, as happened to my friend. Apart from the live monkeys, there's an impressive statue of Hanuman, the monkey god, and a small temple.

“Tranquil”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

Nice Temple. Book a cab / walk from the mall (~ 2 miles). Although the cab ride can be scary a little bit with the hair pin turns, the end result is breath taking. Beware of the notorious monkeys. they wont think twice before snatching anything.

“JAI HANUMAN”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

A huge Hanuman Idol welcomes you once you reach the top.
Beware of the monkeys. they r very menacing. try keeping distance with the help of a stick which you can hire at the foot/entrance of the temple.

“Jai hanuman”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

108 ft high Hanuman Idol ,
Here Hanumanji halted to consult Jakhoo maharaj and enquired about sanjeevni booti. Lots of monkeys, do not carry any eatable in hand, no specs, hold cameras tight as possible.
Marvelous views.
