We decided to walk to the top rather than take a taxi to the back gate. The guide books say its a 15 minute walk up to the Temples but it was quite steep in places and zig-zagged so took more like 45 minutes. Half way up the hill the path splits, right to the sun temple and left to... More

There is a very old temple in between the mountain. It would have been good if the premises is litter free. A very nice nice of the temple and the water flowing from the spring. It is considered as sacred water.

This is one of the oldest temple located around 10km away from the Jaipur city. We like this place since the road to the temple passes through a forest where one can witness peacock, monkey etc. The old painting created in the walls of the temple is another must watch. It has separated bath house for man and woman. Local... More

Good for religious people, else you can skip this. Nothing great, especially if you are an indian. Another untidy temple.. The temple is not maintained at all.

This is a nice place to visit if you want to get off the beaten track and experience some authentic culture and religion. However, one of the men from the temple buildings was extremely pushy, insisting that I come inside "just for one look". The next thing I know he's blessing me and demanding 1000 rupees for the privilege. I... More

After walking over the hill feeding the mommies you arrive at this temple. Free to enter but 50inr camera charge. Nice to see temple worshippers there in their bright orange t shirts and face paints. Beware the floor is filthy! Monkey and cow dung on the floor which isn't a pleasant scene. Steep steps and over 150 high steps complete... More

The place breathtaking view and looks very beautiful. People who love history and art lovers will definitely love this place. But unfortunately they are not maintaining this place. This place is filled with monkeys and they pounce from all direction. They charge some Rs. 10 to 20 as entry fee.There is a small Temple on the top and to reach... More
