Why is there a picture of an elephant chained up?
Why is he chained up? So sad! Dont want to go if it contributes to animal abuse
On the way up the hill to the site you have to pass a few businesses that have elephant rides etc. It is terribly heartbreaking to see but they are in no way affiliated with the Big Buddha itself. Just throw them major dirty looks as you pass like we did!!
