Nineteenth Pair: Rampur and Kapurthala
In front of the Jumma Masjid, the favorite spot of the photographers and filmakers, and people in general. They could see the elephants coming at the distance from this spot, from a low or high point, and they had a huge staircase with enough space for all of them. Everybody could sit on the stairs while waiting for the Main Procession.
First Curve, South side. A popular spot too
The curve at the end of Chadni Chawk
Kapurthala detail I bought digital copies of 2 photographs from the British Library with this elephant. It's one of my favorite elephants for many reasons: the boy sitting by his father inside the howda, the shinny silver howda glowing with the sun, the elephant clothes pattern, the huge turbans, the white and blue umbrella
