It stands with the great poise at Shimla’s highest point offering panoramic view of the entire city. The astounding mountain ranges and the hills leave you astonished by the natural beauty.

Nice Place. Tracking is so much Fun but be aware from monkeys. There are so many monkeys and they can steal any thing from you like cap, shades,any thing. You can go with taxi also and they charged Rs. 200 per person. I personally prefer to do tracking because is really good fun but it’s need stamina and energy. Temple have good canteen for light snacks & every Sunday afternoon there is Bhandara, you can eat tasty food in free of cost. 😊
A beautiful place specially after Snowfall. Has all the basic facilities available with a clean and green environment. Monkeys are usually harmless unless you engage them.
I like this place due to my love for mountains, heights & nature. And the place is fulfill of these categories. But one special advise:: please don't mess with monkeys of jakhu.
Visited with family during summer vacations. There is very huge statue of Hanumanji. Temple is very nice and situated at height. Lot of Monkeys in the temple and we should be careful of our belongings. Overall very blissful experience in temple. We took cab to temple which was arranged by hotel along with other places. one of the famous tourist spot in Shimla and must visit place.
Very steep one lane road to travel and walking is immense to your last breath. But nothing to be worried, all breathlessness is bestowed when you reach the destination. A must site to be visited.
