Great architecture plenty of monkeys, but very dirty even by Indian standards. Was good to look at but only because it was on the way. Would not make a special trip, plenty of other great things to do in Jaipur.

The temple of hanuman have a very good view of building for 500-1000yrs of history but not well maintain. The sanitation is not good but it is believe the water on top is holy water, thus indians will go and have a shower there.

The Monkey Temple is excellent and an absolute must if you visit Jaipur. Just make sure to go in with a Monkey Master (guide) to show you around.

Climbing those stairs and viewing the Ganesh Temple are much more fulfilling than feeding peanuts and bananas to those poor, exploited monkeys.
