A tusker belonging to the Temple of the Tooth Relic, who had participated in the historic Kandy Esala Perahera over the last 40 years, died yesterday at the age of 47.

The elephant was called 'Eka Danthaya' as the majestic animal only had one tusk.

An autopsy will be conducted by Veterinary Surgeons and Wildlife Officers to determine the cause of death.
