White Elephants, Yangon (Rangoon)

Inspirock Rating:
1/5 based on 85+ reviews on the web
White Elephants displays the animals that, throughout history and in numerous Burmese legends, were important and believed to bring good luck to those who owned them. Interestingly, the elephants are not actually white, but are in fact pinkish in color, due to their very rare condition of albinism. Here you'll see three of the elephants sadly chained to a pole, only occasionally taken outside to take part in traditional ceremonies.
