Regarded as a highly sacred pilgrimage with great historical significance, the Galta Ji Temple lies 10 kilometres to the east of Jaipur city. The temple complex is basically a cluster of several temples, Galta Ji being the main temple. The temples are built within a narrow crevice of a mountain pass in the Aravalli hills. There is a huge population of monkeys at Galta Ji due to which, the temple is also called ‘The Monkey Temple’ or ‘Galwar Bagh’. The rhesus macaque and langur monkeys are the monkey species found at Galta Ji.
The temple complex has several sacred tanks that are locally called Kunds and are used by pilgrims for bathing and thereby washing away their sins. The kunds are filled by the means of a natural spring that emerges high on the hills and makes its way downward, filling all seven sacred kunds. The Galta Kund is considered to be the holiest of all kunds here, and also holds great significance as it is believed to have never dried up till date.
