Document updated2018-05-22: new record, mother
Marriappan was born in the tranquil surroundings of the Kozhikamudhi Elephant Camp located in the pristine forests better known as Top Slip in the Anamalai Tiger Reserve, near Pollachi, Tamil Nadu. ... His mother Sivagami would interact with wild elephants, and so there was the possibility that Marriappan’s father was a wild male. The two camp elephants, Kaleem and IG-1 could also have been his father especially IG-1 who was often seen with Sivagami.

1989: The elephant was born in captivity in the Anamalai Forest camp;

1996: sold to the temple when it was 7,5 years old
