Description

Elephanta island is famous because it is home to the “city of caves”, a collection of archaeological cave temples dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.  This first class rupestrian site was added to UNESCO’s list in 1987 and bears witness to its rich past. We’ll gain access to the sight on small boats. The caves are divided into two groups: Five Hindu caves and two Buddhist caves that were carved directly into the mountain. Its masterpiece is the monumental seven-meter sculpture representing Shiva in three forms: the creator, the protector, and the destroyer.
