Galtaji is an ancient Hindu pilgrimage site in the town of Khania-Balaji, built within a mountain pass within the Aravalli Hills 10 km. east of Jaipur. The site consists of several temples and sacred kunds (water tanks) in which pilgrims bathe. It is believed that a Saint named Galav lived here, practiced meditation, and did penance. The temple complex is colloquially known as Monkey temple due to the large tribe of monkeys who live here.
