[SciPy-user] retrieve indexes of 2D array element

I've seen this function where, but it requires three inputs and I have no clue how to use it. Is it possible to give me an example. E.g I have an array as

a = [ [1,2,3], 
        [7,8,9] ]

and I would like to retrieve the indexes of values 9 which are 2, 2.
How do I do that with scipy.where ?

By a specific element, do you mean a certain value? If so use a  
boolean condition and where().
