Photographer's Note

Loong would like to see the Balinese monkeys, so here they are. Three pictures of monkeys and people, I haven't know what to choose (I have many more...).

Monkey Forest, is the sanctuary and natural habitat of the Balinese long-tailed Monkey, scientific name Macaca fascicularis. It is located at Padangtegal Ubud, Bali. About 1049 monkeys live in this sanctuary. The Monkey Forest has 186 species of plants and trees in 12,5 hectares of forest. The forest is owned by the Padangtegal community and is managed by Mandala Suci Wenara Wana Management. The purpose of the management is to keep sacred the place.
The village's residents view the Monkey Forest as an important spiritual, economic, educational, and conservation center for the village.
The Monkey Forest grounds are home to three Hindu temples, all apparently constructed around 1350.

I liked this place very much. It was a perfect mixture of ancient architecture and nature. The first itself was am impressive jungle.
