Elephants are sort of unavoidable when it comes to temple festivals in Kerala. The sight of them lining up on the temple ground with their fellow beings – heads held high, wearing the distinctive golden head covering, accompanied by the classic Panjari Melam background music – is nothing short of a feast for the eyes. Here are a few interesting elephant videos, from across Kerala.
