Wild elephants were once rounded up and kept in this restored kraal (stockade), built from hundreds of teak logs. The king would come out to look on as the animals were chosen for work or war. It's not currently in use. Instead elephants who aren't out working at the historical park are kept chained up in the back. Elephantstay offers people the chance to spend time working with the elephants here. Three-day minimum.
