Up hill climb to temple is tiring as steps are steep, it not for someone with knee problems or health issues.. Hike is worth for the views from the hill top.. Can see vijaynagar empire and tungabhadra river..

575 steps to the top but apart from the temple, the view at the top is worth the pain. Tough climb for those who are not used to it -be ready for aching calves!

I would request Tripadvisor to rename the attraction as Anjani (Monkey) Temple rather than Monkey Temple. Just bcoz it will provide that extra degree of reverence that the residing deity commands. It is also a wonderful sunset point overlooking the excellent architectural example of its...More

This is probably the best thing we did in Hampi. The walk isn’t too long it’s just steep - lots of stairs. Best to do it early morning or evening when it’s a bit cooler. Lovely views of the city from all angles up top

This is the birthplace of Lord Hanuman, who epitomises the virtues of immense strength and loyalty that is valued richly in the Indic tradition. It is most unfortunate to refer his birthplace as a "monkey temple". Having said that, this is indeed a beautiful place....More

The climb to the top is very tough and tiring but once you reach the top, the view itself takes over all the tiredness.

You can take a bus or a rickshaw. When you reach the river take the boat to the other side and then rent a scooter or a bicycle. Have a good time!
