Comments / picturesThe Mangalamkunnu brothers had purchased the first elephant, Ayyappan, in 1978 from Uttar Pradesh, followed by Ganapathy. Until then, it was a provision shop run by their father, Velupillai, which kept the family going. For Shakunthalamma, their mother, the elephants were an extended family.

In 1996, the elephants of Mangalamkunnu brothers were the main attraction in the Miss Universe competition organised by Amitabh Bachan in Bangalore.

The brothers used to be the largest individual owner in Kerala, after the Guruvayur Devaswom. From 18 elephants, they have begun to reduce their Herd which now stands at 10 (2021).
