- Not to be confused with Priest gown.
Monk's robes are a free-to-play set of robes found on the second floor of the Monastery north of eastern Falador and just slightly north-west of the Barbarian Village between Ice Mountain and Edgeville. They provide bonuses to a player's Prayer skill when worn. Each half (the top and bottom) can be worn independently of one another. They are known to be worn by non-member pures as they have no requirements and are free (provided you have 31+ Prayer to access the Monastery). It can be found on the table in one the rooms of the second level of the Monastery. As part of the 7 May 2008 update, monk robes and the Monastery, where they are found in, got a makeover. The top now sports a golden star of Saradomin and incorporates a hood that has been folded down. This makes it resemble a hooded jumper when worn on its own. The Monk's robes don't require any defensive levels to be worn.
This item has been suggested by some players to be worn instead of being completely unarmed.
This robe also is among the best items that give a prayer bonus to free players, and one of the only free-to-play items that give a Prayer bonus in the armour slots (the others being the Priest gown and the Shade robes). Monk robes are commonly used by F2P and P2P PKers, since they offer prayer bonuses and are cheap to replace.

- The difference between regular Monk robes and the Citharede robes (both in looks as the number of individual parts) may suggest that there are different religious orders within the Church of Saradomin. Which gives another parallel to real world Christianity, in specific: Roman Catholicism (like: Augustinians, Benedictines, Dominicans, etc.).
- Since the introduction of the Evolution of Combat, these have become less popular in some situations, as protection prayers no longer completely block all damage of that type, as they did before the Evolution of Combat.
