When we travel, if there is a “monkey temple” nearby, we’ll make our way to it. So hearing of one near Jaipur, India, my wife and I hired a car and took off in an attempt to explore the ancient temple before the sun set too low.
The journey to Galta Temple involved a lot of twists-and-turns on the narrow roadway, then our driver stopping and motioning for us to walk the rest of the way. We hiked through the small temples in the (what I can only describe as) tiny village. The village reminded me a lot of Petra, Jordan with it’s high pink rock walls and two story buildings built right up against the cliffs (in Petra, however, the temples are built *into* the rock wall).
As we walked through the village and approached the temple, I took the above picture of the first little monkey we saw. He was enjoying a couple of bananas, presumably leftover from a previous tourist.
