Elephant lovers rejoice! If you wish to see lot of elephants, albeit in captivity but being treated in the most apt manner head to Puneethar Kota, 3 km away from the Guruvayoor temple. Here nearly 80 elephants in the service of Lord Guruvayoorappan reside, and for the princely sum of Rs 5.00 you can see them being fed, bathed or just doing thier routine chores. Its good fun to watch them splashing in the pond! a word of caution though, do not approach any beast without permission from the venerable mahout!
