Homage to Elephant Genius

Remembering Kerala's most famous elephant

Gajaraj Guruvayur Kesavan

The most celebrated and disciplined elephant in Kerala, Gajaraj Guruvayur Kesavan, was profusely remembered the other day on the eve of Guruvayur Ekadashi festival.

25 tuskers belonging to Guruvayur Devasam lined up before the statue of Guruvayur Kesavan in Sreevalsam Ankanam and paid floral tributes and homage. This ritual is a yearly event after his fateful death on Ekadasi festival day in 1976.

The celebrity tusker highly loved by one and all for his obedience and intelligence was gifted to Guruvayur temple at the age of 10 by Valiya Raja of Nilambur on January 4, 1922.

On the death of Kesavan tears rolled down from millions.
