Worth visiting if you are in Shimla. Peaceful, Calm and Clean. The view atop is pleasant. On the flip side - Monkey snatch anything that is your hand or left unattended. People should be a little considerate and care for the others around them.

You have to climb a number of steps or a sloping path to reach the temple which is common for most temples in the hills. But be aware of monkeys. They snatch... More

This is an interesting temple with a fascinating history But the monkeys are a huge problem stealing things visitors are wearing or carrying including glasses off people's faces as well as scarves and shoes. In fact anything they can get their fast and agile little hands on. The only way to recover an item is patience and bribing them with... More

But after reaching the temple, keep all your belongings in tight hold or the monkeys will snatch them from you. The temple is a very quite and beautiful... More

Very peaceful and serene place. A must visit place in Shimla. It is a good 500-600m steep trek to the temple. Beware of the monkeys and take care of your belongings.
