Monkeys at Hanuman Mandir
Hanuman is a Hindu deity and a central character in the Indian epic Ramayana. He is a Vanara (half-monkey, half-human) who has supernatural powers and can morph into alternate shapes. The Hanuman Mandir near Connaught Place is not only a sacred temple to worship, but also a safe space for monkeys. Feisty and well-fed monkeys. Be cautious and protect your belongings as these rascals are known to steal items, only to be returned with an appropriate treat.
