Welcome to Galta Monkey Temple (Galtaji)

Galta Monkey Temple (Galtaji)

Situated between two granite cliffs, this temple is part of a much larger temple complex. The complex has three sacred pools which the monkeys enjoy swimming in. This Hindi temple is slightly dilapidated but definitely still worth the trip out of the city - the views of Jaipur afforded from its vantage are simply unforgettable. The best time to see the temple is at sunset, when the monkeys appear for their evening swim.
