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

Galta is a pilgrimage place for Hindus. A lot of foreign tourists come here to watch old style temples and monkeys. This place was damaged in floods of 1981 and was renovated afterwards. 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

The online pictures excited us to visit the place. In its original glory it must have been a beautiful place. We were disappointed to see the state of the place now. Poorly maintained, and dirty.The ponds are filthy. Beware of hundred os monkeysOne can skip it

This place has witnessed maximum number of monkeys. Here people workship them. I took al local bus to get there which is already quite an experience to take. When you arrive you are bit overwhelmed because the monkeys are really everywhere and at first it looks a bit scary because you dont know if they will give you a hard... More

Despite degradation and lack of conservation. The temple is still today a place of worship for the locals. It is possible to see believers bathing in the still and dirty waters of the ancient baths. The temple is ruled by "saints" - men who forsake their families and their whole lives to devote themselves to religion

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
