Thiruvananthapuram: The oldest captive elephant in Asia and Guinness record holder, 88-year old Dakshayani, died at a care centre at nearby Pappanamcode.

The end came Tuesday following old age illness, sources in the Travancore Devaswom Board (TDB), which owns the elephant said.

In 2016, she was conferred the "Gaja Muthassi" (elephant granny) title and entered the Guinness book of records.

The Postal department had also brought out a postal cover on the elephant.
