First you have to climb a small mountain,on which the sun-temple is located. On the way up, there are a lot of monkeys, which you can feed, if you like to. The sun-temple is a nice place to see, but it is quiet touristic and they expect you to give a donation. Going the other side down, you reach the... More

We enjoyed feeding the monkeys here, on our way up you see goat and lot of monkeys around, if you want to feed them you can purchase a pack of peanuts from the store for 40 rupees, you can still bargain of course. Do not walk showing the entire pack of peanuts because some monkeys can be aggressive, unless you... More

I was very excited to visit the Monkey Temple - and awed by the drive there which was through beautiful (if not very very littered) countryside - we saw buck and a 6 legged cow! Once there we got a local guide (called himself the Monkey Master). He took fantastic pictures and took us right up to the top (suggest... More

It is a bit far from the city and you will require at least half day to visit this place. Lot of monkeys. Religious people may like it very much as it has historic significance.

Monkeys and monkeys everywhere you go. Though there are many of them they are not a problem at all. They do not grab anything from your hands. (well behaved .. hehehe)

Lovely situation in a ravine, within a forest. Deer in the forest, herds of cattle on the main road, monkeys in the temple, but they can leap on you if you have bananas. The Hindu temples are for the devout locals. Some peacocks.

We were advised to take a guide who said he would protect us from the monkeys, but we didn't believe him. You are made to feel obliged to but peanuts to feed them. They might take,glasses,phones etc though wen we went they were not very active until we started to undo nuts and put them on the temple step (as... More

A lot of monkeys and they are fairly friendly. The monkeys are very picky what you give them to eat. The staff is asking for money but no need to give. Just enjoy the monkeys
