Galta Ji Temple, Galta Ji, Jaipur, Rajasthan

Galta Ji Temple, Galta Ji, Jaipur, Rajasthan

Galtaji or Galta Monkey Temple is a popular Hindu pilgrimage site in Jaipur. Built during the 18th century by Diwan Rao Kriparam, this temple is located 10 km away from Jaipur. Scenic Aravalli Hills surround this temple and the dense green forests help in keeping the temperature of this place moderate. According to mythological tales, Saint Galav, a true believer of god used to meditate in this region. After Galav completed 100 significant years in tapasya (penance), the Gods blessed this region with abundance of water. As an honour to this holy devotee of god, a temple with seven holy kunds (ponds) was constructed at the site. Galta Kund is the most sacred among these seven kunds and it never gets dry. Galtaji also has temples dedicated to Lord Ram, Krishna and Hanuman. During every Makar Sankranti, devotees from various places gather in this temple and take a holy dip in these kunds. According to Hindu religious beliefs, taking a dip in these kunds washes away all one’s sins. The sacred shrine of Galtaji always remains surrounded by groups of monkeys. These monkeys are the permanent dwellers of Galtaji and can be found all over the area. Thus, Galtaji is often called Galta Monkey Temple. Visiting Hours: Sunrise to Sunset, on all week days Photography Allowed: Yes
