Here I was forced to pay a holy man for entering. He didn't have change, so he suggested the reminder be a donation,
which I refused, to his much exaggerated annoyance. On my way back, he silently gave me my change back, which caused an Indian man
to exclaim: "Holy man paying you! Who are you?!"

And this is the Monkey Temple itself. It is actually called Galtaji,
and is from the 16th century.  You can walk there from Jaipur, across those hills in the background,
like I did.
It didn't spiritually overwhelm, but at least it wasn't too crowded.
It's a 15th century Jain temple in the village of Ranakpur. The temple has four faces, and that symbolises the cosmos - Jains believe
that the universe is eternal, nothing is ever created or destroyed. There are three realms: the heavens, the earthly realms,
and the hells. 
Jainism is the first known attempt to create a single doctrine from the rich Indian traditions. [18, ch. 1].
There aren't so many sources on it available, and many of my questions on Jainism have remained unanswered.

Jainism is primarily a religion of non-violence. While it recognises the right to self-defence, it teaches to avoid causing harm;
if harm must be done, it should be done to a being with fewer senses, and therefore Jains must be vegetarians (it's less harmful to kill a plant
than to kill an animal). Some even use a broom
stick to remove insects from their path (my dad told me about it when I was a kid, so that didn't surprise me much)
not to tread on them, and have a piece of cloth on their mouths not to swallow any living creatures (that, I must say, surprised me).
Jainism is divided into two sects: Digambara and Svetambara. Male digambara monks wear no clothes, and only have two possessions:
a peacock feather broom and a water gourd ; they believe women cannot achieve liberation without being reborn as a man .
Svetambara monks can have a few possessions more: clothing, a begging bowl, a brush to remove insects from their path, books and writing materials; they
also believe women can achieve liberation.
The two sects also disagree on which books constitute the scripture.
In terms of temples, the difference between them is that
Svetambara Jains decorate the images with paint and ornaments ; while Digambara Jains don't, and their statues have down-cast
There is no above-all god in Jainism, and there is no creator deity. There are "gods", but anyone can become one if they achieve liberation (moksa). 
One deity is Ambika, the Mother Goddess of Jainism, the patron deity of material prosperity, childbirth, and protection of women. 
Jainism was created centuries BCE as an egalitarian answer to Hinduism and its castes. Together with Buddhism, these 3 religions
share some concepts, and one of them is karma, althought they define it a bit differently.
In Jainism, good deeds give you good karma, and bad deeds give you bad karma. However, here's the catch: all karma is polluting,
and prevents you from achieving liberation.  To achieve it, you have to say goodbye to worldly pleasures,
and become a Jain monk. But not necessarily in this life.
Your karma determines how you will be reborn, whether your next life will be good or bad. You could also go to hell,
and there are eights hells in Jainism; but you will not remain there forever. After the punishment one is reborn in another form. The hells
actually get colder as they go down, not more hot, as one might expect. 
The temple is dedicated to Rishabha, given the title of Adinatha (the first protector). [7, 14] He lived around 7190 BCE,
and is referred to as the founder of Jainism, but there is no historical evidence of that, according to the Indologist
Dr. Herman Jacobi. 
Rishabha is one of the Tīrthaṅkara, that is a human being who helps in achieving liberation and enlightenment. Every Jain temple is dedicated
to at least one deity or Tīrthaṅkara.  The most popular (and last) Tīrthaṅkara is Mahāvīra, the most widely worshipped
propagator of Jainism. 
Imagine this stuff in a Catholic church... Even though Jesus was supposedly crucified naked - the Linz museum
holds a crucifix with naked Jesus [5, Wojciech Kuczok], but the motive didn't really catch up for some reason.
