The small village of Talwas, deep in the forests of India, just recently became home to two monkeys tying the knot.

Raju, a monkey, is seen chained to a wooden log on a thatched roof at Banetha village, located in the northwestern state of Rajasthan, July 4, 2011. Indian forest department officials unsuccessfully tried to a stop a unique simian wedding citing it violated the 1972 Wildlife Protection Act. Monkeys play a significant role in Hindu religion where they are worshipped in the form of Lord Hanuman. Picture taken July 4, 2011. To match Reuters Life!
