#13 of 31 in Parks in Ernakulam District
Wildlife Area · Nature / Park
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.

  • Good place to visit. Very calm place and we have a handful of things arranged by the eho tourism department. Main attractions are deer Park, elephant camp, children's park and butterfly garden. We can have walk for few distance through forest and the river view and the elephant bathing pool is another attractions on this place.
