We saw these monkeys on Elephanta Island which is about ten kilometres by boat across Mumbai Harbour from the Gateway of India. The cave temples on this island hold magnificent sculptures that may be over 1500 years old.
After the experience of enjoying these rich artistic treasures in subdued light, it was such a contrast to emerge into brilliant sunshine to see hundreds of monkeys outside up to no end of activity or, here, inactivity. We were thrilled, but our seven-year old daughter was mesmerized, especially by the youngest infants.
