THE BABY ELEPHANT WALK – AYUTTAYA STYLE!

Yesterday (7 May), mahouts and 500 elephant keepers from the Ayutthaya Elephant Palace in Ayutthaya led 11 white-painted elephants to parade and pay homage to His Majesty the King at the Sawasdisopa Gate of the Grand Palace close to the Temple of the Emerald Buddha. The white elephant is a sacred symbol of royal power and was used on the nation’s flag until 1917.
