Unseen Rajasthan Special-Galta The Monkey Temple.

Located amidst stark surroundings, the shrine of Galta, also known as 'the Monkey Temple', cuts a spectacular spectacle. Perched on the crown of a mount, the temple, is located at close quarters from the beautiful Sisodia Rani-ka Bagh. It is said that the hallowed portals of the temple played host to the penance rituals of God man Galava. This shrine also used to register huge footfalls from the devotees of Lord Krishna, belonging to the religious order of Ramanand.

Visitors from all across the world troop to the sacred precincts of the temple devoted to the Sun deity. The brainchild of Diwan Kriparam, an attendant to Sawai Jai Singh, the Second. A trip to the temple of the Sun God, is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience. The eastern portion of its holy precincts comprises interesting architecture. Consisting of three water bodies, drawing their regular source of water from the gaumukh, these are star attractions of the temple. This was built in keeping with the social norms of the times, an age when separate bathing ghats were designated for men folk and women folk. The lowermost water body is devoted to Lord Hanuman.
