Lo and behold, the Monkey King

Hanuman, the Ramayana monkey king, stands frozen in the midst of triumph at the entrance to the 17th century old Sangeh Monkey Forest Temple. Below his unkempt feet and surrounded by his divine brethren is a mound of the celestial Mount Meru, which broke off and landed upon this spot after the fierce monkey god lifted the mountain Itself to squash a villainous ogre or perhaps demon who slighted him. Well impressive.
