Animals in India are really everywhere: dogs, goats, cows.
But what intrigues and amuses the most are the monkeys.
They are so similar to the man to have even their own swimming pool!!
Below a video that shows monkeys jumping and gives you the chance to have a look at the whole “Monkey temple”!
It’s the monkey temple in Galta.
The monkey temple can be reached on foot (about 1 hour) or in tuk tuk from downtown Jaipur, the red city.
As you approach the monkey temple, traffic becomes more and more distant, and the noise of the horns leaves room to the goats bleating, some cows mooing and the thuds of monkeys falling from the roofs of the houses.
You’ll see first the Temple of the Sun, a small temple offering an amazing view over the entire Jaipur. From here, the road continues with trees and tranquility.
At the end of the path, there are two spurs of rock and set there a true jewel: the temple of Galta.
In this complex there are 3 sacred baths that are said to be “different elephants” deep.
The first, the one closest to the two main temples, is reserved to women who, removed the colorful veils of their sari, immerse themselves in the holy water. To keep them company, some quiet monkeys watching and walking on the edge of the pool.
