Earlier this week, I was hiking in the “monkey valley“. Where is “Monkey Valley” in Jaipur? well! it’s for real!! you can check it out over here. The term monkey valley is coined by the foreign travelers visiting Galta Temples due to the thriving monkey population in the narrow alley surrounding the temples.
Do read my post on Sun temple situated on this route. The term ” Jaipur Monkey Temple” is more popular as it refers to the Galta temples. Try google with the term “monkey temple” and you’ll be surprised with a plethora of information submitted by your search!
While hiking up during predawn hours, I reached a spot where a wall on my right side was running parallel to the trail. The grass on the other side of the wall was quite high; partly because it was on a flat area on top of the hill while the trail was set on a lower level.
I decided to cross over to the other side of the wall as the trail was coming to an abrupt end. It did take some time to cross through the grass and thorny bushes to reach the wall.It seems the wall was built by the forest department to keep wild animals from crossing over towards the urban areas. Such walls are usually constructed by placing loose stones over one another, without using any binding agents like lime or cement.
As soon as I climbed on top of this wall & I decided to capture this shot! The view was pretty amazing. Here is a picture of a beautiful sunrise in Jaipur from Monkey Valley.
I hope you did notice that there are two distinct colors in the sky?? The area of the sky lit up by Sunrays has an orange hue while the rest has a typical predawn grey-blue tint. I shot this picture with a 50mm lens, famed for crisp images!
