Monkeys like this one are considered sacred at this temple in the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary in Ubud, Indonesia. It's a big tourist hit, and thus the monkeys have become emboldened and accustomed to people. It's not uncommon to see people posing with monkeys on their shoulders, or taking selfies as a monkey crawls around in their hair. Nonetheless, one can still find serene moments like this one where both man and monkey mind their own business.
