Elephant Camp

, Guruvayur

Elephant Camp in the Punnathur Kotta, located 3 km from the Guruvayur temple is the largest elephant sanctuary in India. Once the property of the kings of Punnathur, this 10 acre camp is home to more than 60 elephants. The intriguing fact here is that all these elephants are offerings made by devotees to the temple.

This elephant camp has produced many renowned elephants like Guruvayur Kesavan and Guruvayur Padmanabhan, used during major temple festivals & processions to carry the temple idol like the Shiveli procession.

The elephants in the camp will participate in an elephant race held by the temple to determine who will carry the Guruvayurappan Idol during the festival. The Anayottam (Elephant Race) attracts thousands of tourists to this place.
