    1. Elephants are really majestic animals.
      Especially when they are trained .
      In India , they have very important place in all festivities.

      Thank you so much !

  1. Wonderful. It reminds me of the photos and cards my mum used to get from her Ceylonese penfriend, when I was very young, of the Kandy Perahera…. Such beautiful creatures.

    1. This is in southern part of India which is culturally related to Srilanka ( formerly Ceylon ).
      Elephants are highly revered animals in Hindu culture .

      Thank you , D&Z

    1. Indian elephants are certainly smaller in size . The shape of head is also little different.
      In Hindu culture there is much reverence for elephants .
      The festivities are often incomplete without their presence.

      Thank you , Susan.
