Galta Ji Temple

Well, I went Galtaji temple from Narayan Singh circle. This circle is like IFFCO chauk of Gurgaon. You will get the buses for different places which you may not get from the bus stand. However, I wasn’t aware of the route to Galtaji, after reaching Narayan Singh circle, I checked on Google maps. But I couldn’t figure out. Finally, I asked a traffic police officer. And then he told me that I need to take a cab for Transport Nagar Jaipur. I crossed the road and reached the stop. Here I took a shared cab to Transport Nagar which costed me just 10 rupees. Now from here, I took an e –riksha which dropped me at the entry gate of Galtaji Temple. And from here, I took a long walk. It looked like trekking. The mountainous path, through several ups and downs takes around half an hour. This temple is also known as Monkey Temple due to abundance of monkeys.

Entry - Free

Photography charges: 50 INR
