Among these kunds, the 'Galta Kund', is the holiest one and is believed to never get dry.

We'll move forward hiking to the sun temple at the Mountain Top,. The Sun Temple Jaipur is a small Hindu temple that lies high above Jaipur and provides wonderful panoramic views over the city. The Sun Temple Jaipur is positioned on a rocky outcrop on the edge of the Aravalli Hills and is part of the larger Galta ji temple complex, which is 2km further to the east in a shallow valley.
