Bathtime for Babar

The Guruvayoor Devaswom elephant sanctuary, Punnathurkotta, holds the most elephants I’ve seen in one location. It’s an amazing place. The elephants are well-attended by their mahouts and temple vets, who prepare them for various rituals and festivals at the nearby and enormously active pilgrimage site, Guruvayoor Sree Krishna Temple. Today a number of the massive creatures at Punnathurkotta were getting scrubbed down (see video below).
