The ancient hindu pilgrim site nestles amidst low hills. It was once the principal seats of the ramanand sect of vaishnavites and was also associated with sage galava, who is believed to have performed penance here. The sacred site is studded with temples, pavilions and holy kunds. The temple of sun god built by diwan kriparam is the most important shrine of galtaji. To the east of sun temple is a reservoir, perennially fed by a spring of pure water falling from a gaumukh (an outlet shaped like the mouth of cow). Many pilgrims assemble here to take a holy dip in the kunds (reservoirs), whih are also believed to possess curative powers. An impressive view of the city can be enjoyed from the hills. There are several ancient temples, beautiful gardens and kiosks located nearby.
