Monkeys are adorable, but regrettably they carry some potentially fatal diseases. The guide I used at the Monkey Temple encouraged me to get monkeys to climb on me and encouraged me to feed them by hand. Toward the end of the tour, he was hinting that I should give him LOTS of Rupees because the monkeys carry rabies, he had... More

Great place, very litle tourist when we were there. We hired a "monkey" man (he called himself that), a kind of a guide with great knowledge of the monkeys overflowing the temple ground. We had big fun, the temples were great, but the monkey experience was wonderful. It was free to access, but we needed to pay for bringing cameras... More

This temple is definitely worth to be visited! You can both admire the grandeur and the beauty of this temple complex among the mountains. Plus, you have the chance to have some fun time with those naughty funny monkeys who guard the temples. As it usually happens in India, you'll be approached by somebody who proposes himself as a tour... More

Visiting the Monkey Temple is definitely worth it and there is a fair amount to explore here. I enjoyed watching the monkeys running around, and was impressed by the women who scare them off when they are misbehaving. Once we were beyond the temple with the pool (Galta Kund, I believe), a man convinced us there was more to see... More

I thought this place was wonderful. The guides and people who work there seem to really care about the animals. They are wild, they are free and it's up to you to stay safe. While feeding the monkeys grapes, 'Big Daddy' came over and tried to steal all of my stash. I told him he was a bad, greedy boy... More

It was a very quiet morning when we visited in February. There are several temples to visit and not unexpectedly quite a few monkeys to see, they must have been on a "go slow" as they weren't interested in us at all. It was a peaceful experience and interesting seeing the Temples without hoards of people around.
