(Scroll down for video) A large crowd of onlookers in India, gathered to watch a man marrying off two monkeys, according to a video uploaded to the Internet.

More than two hundred people came out to watch how Udesh Mahto, who owns two pet monkeys, married them off in an elaborate ceremony.

The newlywed monkeys were even blessed by a Hindu priest in Bettiah, Bihar. The ceremony included an SUV decorated with flowers, wedding invitations and music.

The bride, called Ramdulari, was dressed in a pink and green gown, while the groom, Ramu, wore a nice shirt. Mahto said that he decided to marry the monkeys because they truly love each other.

Mahto bought 13-year-old Ramu in Nepal, and later bought the bride at a local fair. A great feast was held to celebrate the marriage.

Villagers from the surrounding areas traveled to Bettiah to participate in the festivities.
