2019-10-14: "Rajendran", a 70-year old temple elephant belonging to Paramekkavu Devaswom, who was a regular presence in the famed Thrissur Pooram festivities for over 50 years, died here early on Monday following age related ailments.

The animal had been brought to the Paramekkavu temple in 1955 when it was around 12 years.

Then Melshanthi (chief priest) Parameshwara Namboodiri had raised around Rs 4,000 from devotees for the purchase of the tusker which has been participating in the Pooram festivities since 1967.
