A Monkey at the Batu Caves

The Batu Caves, Malaysia

Less than ten miles from Kuala Lumpur, the Batu Caves house one of the most popular Hindu shrines in the region. When I first caught the expression of this monkey, poised and watchful, I imagined to myself he might be wearing an expression of prayer, of solemnity, of reverence.

How wrong I was.
