This elephant was offered to guruvayoor temple by a ancient nampoothiri family known as Puthillathu Mana, Perumbavoor about 50 years back, as a remembrance for the blessing received from Lord Guruvayoorappan in the form of a baby boy for the then senior member of the family.

Ramankutty holds the record in winning 11 titles at the famous aanayottam (elephant race) annual festival.

His Mahout was Unnikrishnan, who was with Ramankutty for 17 years.
