Galtaji Temple, Jaipur

3.3
Built within Aravalli Hills with natural freshwater springs and seven holy water tanks, Galtaji Temple offers lush landscape and sweeping views of Jaipur. With their curved roofs, wall paintings, and carved pillars, the spectacular 18th-century structures made of pink sandstone resemble a palace more than a Hindu temple. Also called the "Monkey Temple," the complex stands bounded by dense trees and bushes, and features shrines to Ram, Krishna, and Hanuman--as well as a resident community of rhesus macaques. Of the seven tanks filled by water flowing from a rock shaped like cow's head, the holiest one is believed to never run dry.
