Located in the city of Ubud, the Monkey Forest serves as a natural habitat for the Balinese long-tailed macaque, an endangered species. Macaques, or Macaca fascicularis, are a type of monkey found in the forest, and there are about 600 of them spread across six distinct areas. These amusing creatures, which eat bananas while swinging through the trees, are easy to spot. Mandala Wisata Wenara Wana, situated in Ubud's Padangtegal village is the original name of this monkey forest. There are three highly revered Balinese Hindu temples located within this sanctuary, which is why it is more commonly known as the "Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary."
