This is a picture from Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage in Sri Lanka, which houses a largest herd of captive elephants in the world. Some 80 elephants are being kept there. Based on several reviews posted on the web, may be controversial due to observed way how animals are being treated there. During my visit, I did not notice anything negative but I was not specifically looking for it.
