This is also monkey temple situated inside a forest. You have to take help of local people to enter it. Locals have their shops inside the forest and offer goods at cheap rate. You can also take snaps wearing traditional dress.
Nice temple inside monkey forest. Not open for tourists to go inside. Local people who want to go to pray can go inside. But you can see from outside.
we saw real monkeys who are very free to do whatever they want. it was fun watching them steal stuff from chinese fellows, sun glassess and hair of european girls 😂 one of the most striking thing to see was the monkey cemetary. we prayed for the monkeys. we love them all. peace.
Forest with a lot of monkey's that can do whatever they want. Best time to visit is after sunrise when they just had breakfast. During daytime it's really hot in the forest and that also affects the monkeys. They're more agressive and if you have some loose things with you they'll try to steal it, like hats, glasses, bottles of water etc.
A temple under the shady forest, so mysterious yet calming.
