Anakotta, the Elephant Sanctuary At Guruvayur                                                                                  By  



The Elephant Sanctuary at Guruvayur hosts 82 trained elephants, most of them given by devotees to the Lord.

Gaja Puja or Worship of Elephants is done here, as an offering to Lord Ganesh. Elephant Feeding is also done here. 

Padmanabhan is the most senior elephant of this group. We find that most tourists who come here visit this famous Sanctuary.
