At a distance of 10 Kms from Pathanamthitta, Konni is famous as an Elephant Training Center. It is located near Iravan village (less than 1 Km) on SH67 between Pathanamthitta and Pathanapuram.
Located in thick forest environment, this training center was used to train wild elephants. However, this place is not used for elephant trainings any more.
