Galtaji, Jaipur

The Temple of Galtaji is an ancient pilgrimage site famous for its natural water springs. Temples, pavilions and holy kunds (natural springs and water tanks) can be found among the lush landscape of the complex. In all, there are seven tanks, the holiest being the Galta Kund, which never goes dry. It is considered auspicious to take bath in the holy waters of Galtaji. Thousands of people come every year to take a dip in the tanks to rinse out their sins. The main temple is the Temple of Galtaji, built in pink stone. It is famous due to the large tribe of monkeys who live there. Another temple of note within the complex is the Surya Temple dedicated to the Sun God. The temple is decked with rounded roofs, exquisitely carved pillars and painted walls.
