Monkey Temple (Galta Ji)

Known for the large number of monkeys who live in the abandoned temple and vicinity

Built within a mountain pass in the Aravalli Hills east of Jaipur, Galtaji has been the pilgrimage destination for Hindu ascetics belonging to the Vaishnava Ramanuja sect. Said to have been the occupation of yogis for a long time, the temple features a natural spring from the hill as well as sacred kunds (water tanks) in which pilgrims bathe.
