Monkey Temple is a part of a group of temples known as Galtaji. Galtaji is a cluster of temples and kunds (water tanks) located in the town of Khaniya-Balaji, near Jaipur. It is called the Monkey Temple because large tribes of monkeys have made it their home. One should carry water bottles and sealed food packets when visiting the temple. Unsealed food might attract monkeys which can be very tormenting. The temple has also been shown on National Geographic Channel’s Rebel Monkeys. It is believed that the monkey’s here are very intelligent. One can offer fruits which the monkeys accept very gently.
