Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage


This is a very interesting place to see in Sri Lanka where you will find elephants abandoned, wounded or stranded from their group are being kept and well treated. This is owned by the Government of Sri Lanka. There you will get a bunch of elephants more than even 100 in various ages from infants to the old.

Some pictures from the bathing time. Whole bunch of elephants will be brought to the nearby river on a fixed time of the day as per the scheduled time table and you are allowed to take pictures while going or while bathing. It is very interesting to see how they bath as they will be very playful in the bathing time.

Elephant feeding can be seen here as per the time table. They will be given milk in large quantities.
