India - Wildlife - 008 - elephant in Kanchipuram

A painted elephant at one of the many temples in Kanchipuram. If you give him a coin, he will take it from your hand and bless you with his trunk (by draping it over your head and/or shoulder). I'm not so big on captive animals, particularly elephants, but they are beautiful creatures nonetheless and seemed to be in good health (and without chains). .
