Considered one of the jewels of Jaipur, Galtaji Temple is located 10 km away from Jaipur. It has a number of natural fresh water springs and seven holy ‘kunds’ (tanks). The temple is built in pink sandstone, and lying amid low hills, it looks more like a palace than a temple.
The Galtaji Temple was built in the 18th century by Diwan Rao Kriparam, an attendant to Sawai Jai Singh II at a pre-historic religious/spiritual site. Saint Galav is said to have spent a 100 years here in tapasya. Due to this, the gods blessed the place with abundant water.
