These apes are protected, considered the descendants of the Hindu monkey god. Here in Jaipur, they enjoy many privileges, being fed by the devotees of the temple with offerings of fruit and nuts. It's quite common to see the "friendly" macaques watching people go around the city, but I think that really they're keeping an eye on the stall keepers selling fruit, waiting for the opportune moment to strike. The stall keeper always reacts with anger, but although he might try to chase the macaque, he's always too late.
