Beautiful surroundings and nature. Monkeys do not attack. Of course, if you do not feed them and follow the guards' instructions. It's not too crowded. There are no intrusive sellers. You can see the monkey from the vicinity. Be careful with glasses, necklaces, earrings ......More

This place was very unique and enchanting. Underneath the trees in the shaded forest were tons and tons of monkeys! The temple itself was blocked off so you couldn’t walk up to it, just view from a distance behind closed gates. There were monkeys of...More

A great experience and one i'll definitely remember. Don't fall in to the trap of buying bananas in the forest. Half the time, the Monkey will come up to you anyway.

It's weird, they roam free on a beautiful property and are not as mischievous as some monkeys... But if they misbehave, they might get a bopping on the head with a sling shot... the preferred tool of monkey discipline on and around the forest by...More

We didn’t get bitten. The staff are quick to fend off and of the monkeys that express aggressive behavior.

In fact, it was raining when we came. Monkeys like water and even play in it. They are wet and can make your clothes dirty, but only if you take a monkey for photo
