Monkeys are abundant in India, roaming freely around streets and temples; and sometimes used as entertainment in monkey shows.

This was a bit of a sad sight on Marine Drive in Bombay.

In Jaipur,Β  at the Jaigarh Fort, monkeys were simply hanging about in trees and walking along the tops of the palace walls.

They look cute, but apparently wreck havoc in the city. Read this story on the monkeys of Jaipur, it's quite alarming.Β  It can't be easy living with these creatures, but because monkeys are considered sacred, they cannot be harmed and are dealt with by monkey-catchers!
