Elephants draw tourists to Guruvayur

Tourists are flocking to Lord Sreekrishna temple in Guruvayur, where it is now relaxation time for 60 elephants.

After 11 months’ temple duty, rejuvenation helps them regain their health. During the month-long pampering, their weight will increase by 250-700 kg.

Sathyapalan (53), a mahout, is always busy preparing food for the elephants. Under the supervision of the vet, he blends boiled rice, herbs, lentil, green gram, horse gram, medicinal plants and vitamin tablets.
