Special Tip: Deposit your belongings at the stall near Shri Hanuman Mandir Jakhoo to safeguard them from monkeys and if you are traveling with your friends don’t do the mistake to hand over your stuff to a single friend while going to the temple, Monkeys may create a problem for you.

I only mentioned this because I have a lot of fear of Monkeys. During My Journey to Shri Hanuman Mandir Jakhoo, A Mokey takes away specks of my friend and we have to do a lot of struggle to get the specks back like giving monkey the packet of channa and all.
