Caption: Rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta) by a pool at the Galwar Bagh ('monkey temple') at the Ramgopalji complex, part of the Hindu pilgrimage site at Galtaji, near Jaipur, Rajasthan, India. This temple is often called the monkey temple, as it is visited by a number of troops of Rhesus monkeys. The locals feed them fruit, while tourists and casual visitors also feed them peanuts. This monkey is also called the rhesus macaque. It is found throughout Afghanistan, northern India and southern China. It is gregarious, occurring in large groups ranging from 20 to 180 individuals. It feeds on leaves, pine needles, roots and occasionally insects.
