Feeding monkeys in India

Monkey is considered sacred in India. Pilgrims as shown above often feed these monkeys near temple india. Monkeys are seen as a manifestation of the monkey god Hanuman by many Hindus, who feed them and are prohibited from killing them by their religion.

I have seen people as young as 5 years kids were  feeding monkey near Dakhineswar Kali temple. Parents also encourage their children to feed these sacred monkeys
