Nestled in the east hills of Jaipur is this small but quaint temple complex with both architectural and natural beauty.

Access to the temple is quite difficult but that's not the main complaint. The place was extremely dirty (I probably shouldn't be surprised since people just threw stuff on the floor for the monkeys to eat and no one cleans up after). The priests/caretakers had told us that there would be a charge if we wanted to take pictures so... More

This place can be much more but is highly neglected and the water stinks. Good to visit but has some serious stinking aura.

We went to Galtaji more because it was on our way between attractions and it was a big surprise. The temple complex is very interesting with monkeys in several places. It was very interesting that when we were coming back to the car we hire local women came dancing and made my wife dance and sing with them, a memorable... More

Prior to 1981 there were very old steps in this area which have been ruined by renovation. Those who have seen it in olden days will agree... More
