We had a two day tour of Jaipur and guide recommended we add this to our itinerary. Exceeded all expectations. So much fun to feed monkey's. Bring lots of bananas and other fruits with you.... you won't be disappointed

It's overwhelming at first at the amount of wildlife that is present: Monkeys, Cows, Pigs, and Dogs are literally everywhere. After a while you get used to the presence of them and there are great views back on the city from the temple. This place...More
