How to Reach Dhamma Thali?
Dhamma Thali is about ½ a k.m. before the famous landmark Galta ji temple. You can reach Dhamma Thali by road traveling via Transport Nagar, Sisodiya Rani Baug (on Jaipur-Agra Road) and Ghat ke Balaji. Be sure to mention ‘via Sisodiya Rani Baug’.
Many autorickshaws make the mistake of taking the passenger to Galta Gate rather than come to the Centre which lies before Galta Temple. Please note that Galta Gate and Galta Temple are in opposite directions. To avoid this mistake, kindly be sure to emphasize ‘via-Sisodiya Rani Baug’ when traveling by auto.
Those coming from or via Delhi or Agra would do well to get down at Transport Nagar Chauraha (this is about 8 kms before the Sindhi Camp Bus Stand) and then reach the Centre (4 kms from here) by auto rickshaw. This may cost about Rs. 80-100.
