For the best views of shimla take the sky rope/cable car to the temple as the views of shimla are stunning. The views from the top are restricted because of the trees. The temple itself is quite small but interesting the large monkey statue Is impressive, watch out for the monkeys up here thought they can get quite aggressive . worth a visit for the views though.

Jakhu Temple is an ancient Hanuman Temple located in Shimla. We took a cab to visit the temple, not the ropeway. Some development work in under progress near temple stairs, after whose completion access to the temple shall be easier.

Jakhu Temple in Shimla is a popular Hindu shrine dedicated to Lord Hanuman. It is situated on Jakhu Hill and offers breathtaking views of the city and surrounding hills. It is a must-visit for those seeking spiritual experiences and stunning views.

We visited the Temple this week and it was a great experience. The life size statue of Hanuman and the little temple are obviously great and worth the experience. We walked all the way to the doorway office but we’re told it wasn’t working and due maintainence which was a great disappointment - their website didn’t state anything of the sort on the day and really unprofessional of the officials to not update the status of the ripe way there to save everyone time and effort. We ended up taking our own car there and it’s a 30mins drive from main Shimla, thoroughly enjoyable and highly recommend the site.

A scenic location and a bit of a drive to reach. Some steep steps to climb to reach the temple and statue. Be prepared to be greeted by the resident monkeys - advised not to make eye contact and not wear glasses as the monkeys might steal them. The statue is impressive and colorful. The temple is a place of Hindu worship and all are welcome to enter - take shoes off. Allow about 30 mins minimum for visit - some beggars as you climb up.

Perfect Place it is not accessible by road hence it is clean and clear. Easily reachable by Rop e way or Trekking both the option are good I have chosen Rope way because did not have enough time but personally I would prefer Trekking.

Beware of Monkeys they will take anything from you from your pocket, bags or even your Spex or Goggle and if you want to get it back you need to give them something to eat.
They will have your things taken even without you knowing it. One of monkey took my Spex from jumping on my shoulder and I come to know when my Spex was in his hand.

Must Visit Place whenever you are in Shimla.

Beware of monkeys. They have special skills to snatch your spectacles and upon providing some food, they will drop off your spectacles.
