Thought I'd seen enough monkeys, but a few hours spent here was worth it... If you have a driver of course. 50 rupees on entry for mobile camera. My advise just put your phone in your pocket.

These poor monkeys are so unwell. Their bums red & infected, limbs missing, fur mangy. No grass, no trees, just concrete to sit on, infested water to drink and skinny dogs and pigeons for company. This is animal abuse & the place is full of...More
