Trip Planner: Asia / India / Himachal Pradesh / Shimla District / Shimla / Jakhu Temple
At Jakhu Temple, see the red 33 m (108 ft) tall idol of the Hindu deity, Hanuman. Locals believe that Hanuman, also known as the Monkey Lord, brings fortune to those who embark on an uphill trek to reach his sacred refuge. At an altitude of 2,455 m (8,000 ft), the ancient temple also harbors its most peculiar denizens--monkeys--who signify the god's omnipresence. However, be sure to secure all your belongings when you reach the site, because these creatures are known to take anything they can get their hands on. Before leaving the temple, ring the bell for good luck before descending back to the city. Put Jakhu Temple and other Shimla attractions into our Shimla journey tool, and watch your holiday take shape.

Probably the best place in Shimla. Lovely trekking experience. You can trek from Mall Road to temple or take cable car ride to temple. But the trekking experience would be really great. Be aware of the monkeys, they may take anything away from you anytime.
A great place to visit, its 8400 ft high from the 🌊 level, any you should definitely try the cable car once, its a awesome experience overall. You another thing you should not wear any sunglasses or glass as that can been taken by the bandars. For more info you can always refer to my photos. Thank you.
