Many temples in India keep elephants as they are considered sacred.
Devotees seek blessings from them. They are also required to participate in temple rituals.

Now a “rejuvenation camp”, the first of its kind in India, has been set up in Tamil Nadu state to pamper the elephants with their favourite food and relaxing baths.
