Kodanand Elephant Training Centre, Kodanad

#14 of 34 in Parks in Ernakulam District
Elephant capture was banned in India in 1977, but the long tradition of elephant training--reportedly in a more humane instead of torture-based manner--is still very much alive at Kodanand Elephant Training Centre. The site also teaches mahouts (elephant handlers) how to handle elephants with care. A small adjoining park is home to deer and other wildlife.
