Why is this to-do so low on the list? We were here for 3 hours and just had a blast the whole time. It's amazing to interact with monkey. Simply fascinating. We held and had numerous monkeys on us with no problems. Bring some peanuts....More

We arrived after a long trip from Agra and made it to the Temple just before sunset. Barely a soul in the place. Made it very eerie. Like something out of an Indiana Jones movie. Even the ride to the Temple is cool. Passing through...More

Unfortunately, the site is a nest of fake 'guides', hawkers and beggars. Large groups of men hound visitors in a shameful attempt to extort money. This is even made even more disgraceful, given the religious significance of the temple. We were followed for almost 1km...More

We visited in September. I can't say that I was wowed by it. It's pretty, but not worth going to, in my option. We missed Albert Hall for it, which I would not do again. It's off the beaten path, not clean by any means,...More

I love it, but won't give a 5 star because it's not fair that you have to pay an entry fee depending on your face, it's a temple and should be opened to everyone!! I went with some 'white' friends and we had to pay...More

Not at all necessary. The water is super dirty. It is considered to be holy water by the localities. but if you like to enjoy from the view , take a room in the hotel which is on the water

Not sure what the question is? The answer above is quite accurate. There are a number of temples within the complex and they do want to lure you in for a donation. There is also a sign indicating a small charge for taking... More
