The Monkeys - Agra
The Monkeys Sikandra Review

You will also see quite a few langur monkeys which appear to be fairly tame. There was a guy feeding them. I don’t know if he was employed to do so or just befriended them.

Picnic Spot - Agra

The complex with its gardens is apparently a favourite picnic spot for couples and families. The water channels are unfortunately dry but the gardens must have been quite beautiful in its day.
