Elephants are an important part of the Indian society, and in Jaipur, these huge and cute animals are all around the forts of Jaipur, Rajasthan. So, even if one goes by the anecdotes, the animals are essential since then. Elephant painting in Jaipur is a very zestful event and one can experience this life around the forts of Jaipur all year long. However, there is an Elephant Festival which is the biggest event that has a huge number of mahouts (the elephant owner/manager) with their cute beasts ready for the same.
While a lot of rumors go around that the painting colors used from the elephant painting can harm their skin and have major consequences, it is not so. The mahouts that have served elephants from ages know what is good for them and what isn’t. When it comes to the Jaipur, the majority of the places that undertake elephant painting do it with eco-friendly, sustainable and natural colors that do not affect the animals in any adverse way.
As mentioned, elephant painting can be seen at a lot of places, however, nothing matches the grandeur of the Elephant festival.
