They might be most less talked about animal, when it comes to Ranthambore- we talk about tigers, crocs, monitor lizards and much more, but certainly not about monkeys. Although monkeys are integral part of the tiger reserves and ones to give the indication of spotting a tiger, but still here we are talking about monkeys of Ranthambore fort, which is located inside the tiger reserve and is claimed to have only temple in world of Trinetra (three-eyed) Ganesha. Devotees throng this temple, many of them on their foot for kilometres and some do encounter an odd tiger on the way.  Well here is a peek into monkey ‘business’!

    Loved this post. Thank you for sharing. These monkeys can be such cheeky fellas, I had my sun glass snatched off my face by a monkey once. But they are undeniably full of life and expressions

      Was it at Ranthambore? Yes, few get a bit aggressive when repeatedly denied their share of ‘prasad’ from the ones who have it in their hands. But they are certainly sombre in comparison to their counterparts at Jakhu in Shimla.

        Afterall, our forefathers they are! We inherit a lot from them.
