Hello Ganesan Ram,
Temple elephants, a kind of captive animals, are owned by Indian temples (sometimes hired from outside or received as donation) to take part in festivals and other rituals. This picture is well composed to include a cute temple elephant resting and eating fodder in a temple hall (mantap) surrounded by shady trees. The author does a full justification in presenting the bright, sharp and naturally colorful picture. Thank you for the nice presentation.
