  White Elephants

 

Myanmar

Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, in 2016 AD still possessed three rare White Elephants, i.e. two females and one tusked male. These sacred animals are kept in a sala-like pavilion in Yangon (fig.).

 

Whereas the male arrived in Yangon in 2001 at the age of ca. eight years old, while each of the two females arrived separately in 2002, one aged 25 years, the other then aged only 2.
