Amazing place and the Hanuman ji temple was so amazing

Amazing place and the Hanuman Ji temple was so amazing. Very tight security by Air force people, no electronic devices are allowed, but worth to visit once in a life time.

Good place to visit

A very good place to visit for sure, don't carry any mobile, camera or any other gadget as clearance from air force checkpoint is required to visit. One I'd proof is required to get the token for checkpoint.

Monkey Point - Good place for young blood

Only for young blood because too many steps, not for baby, old, pregnant women etc. Please bring some energy drinks before climbing up, you must purchase from shop there only. No need to carry from out. This area is under air force, so camera mobile strictly prohibited. Things inside are as priced as in market. Must reach by 09:30, this is the time of opening.

Monkey point is Hanumanji's Temple at Air Force base, Kasauli

It is a generously a peaceful temple point to visit at Kasauli situated at Air Force Base, on a peak with nice view and fine weather. If you are going by Car or Cab than it's ok because army does not allow to take any belongings with you like Mobile, Camera, Bag etc and there is no locker facility to keep them.
