Well stairs to Jakhu temple which is devoted to Lord Hanuman start from the Mall Road itself. It has pretty steep climb and beware of monkey menace in-between .. at top temple is beautiful and utter calm and cool environment.

Interesting place to visit with great views. Probably best to have a guide to have a better understanding of the place.

Pleasant walk, nice place. I was expecting a view of far-away mountains form the top, but it was still hazy from up there.

This place is just awsome. More and more visits in future.Mountains and the nearby town of Sanjauli is ohh just fab. It is the highest peak in Shimla and gives shelter to countless playful monkeys which can be found waiting to be fed by visitors.

Hanuman murti is an attraction point. Visit the temple n don't forget to visit the cafe behind the temple. Wn we were there, that was a rainy day some rides are closed on that day. Monkeys are there. Dts it.
