Monkey Temple is found in Rajasthan, around 10km east of its capital, Jaipur.
It is an ancient pilgrim site, home to several temples and two kunds (water tanks) in which the pilgrims bathe. The primary temple is built in pink stone and is named the Temple of Galtaji. Architecturally, it is beautiful and this is increased by the natural spring surround the temple. The spring flows as a number of waterfalls, creating the two tiered pools. It is said that this water flows from the holy River Ganges.
The site is known as Monkey Temple due to the large community of monkeys that inhabit it. It really is a sight that is quite special; we guarantee it will bring a smile to your face.
OUR TIP: Buy some oranges and bananas from the local market en route, feeding the wild monkeys is something you definitely don’t want to miss!0
