Surprise blessing from temple elephant Kanchipuram  India

Surprise blessing from temple elephant

Kancheepuram in Tamil Nadu, south India is famous for two things. Saris and temples. I spent a day touring both the sari making workshops and many of the temples. At this one, I forget the name, I asked a man to take my photo standing in front of the temple elephants. To my surprise, one of them "blessed" me with his trunk -- and the man snapped the photo at exactly the right time. Just another one of those lovely serendipitous moments in India.
