Sixth pair of Elephants: Kota and Orchha
Kota and Orchha walking in front of the Main Hall and by the clock tower, along Chadni Chawk street.

Orchha is one of the elephants I've been considering to make soon. There are a few things I need to solve first: the columns are too thin, so they need to be made of brass or steel in order to remain straight and holding the roof. One of the reasons why I like the elephant too is that he has a glass tulip attached to each tusk. And the embroidery of the elephant clothes is beautiful

Check the detail of this photo. You can clearly see the peculiar looking man sitting at the back of the howda. It's the only picture I have where you can see him at all.
