One of the best places to eat out in town, The Sitting Elephant is surrounded by hills on three sides with the holy Ganga ﬂowing through it. Dine inside with tuskers all round or go outside and witness the serene beauty of the mountains and river. If you look outside the restaurant into the mountains, you will witness an illusion which depicts a Sitting Elephant. Amazing eh?!
