Take this half day excursion to the Elephanta Caves, located nine kilometres by sea from the Gateway of India (approximately one hour boat ride). A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Elephanta Caves are a must see when visiting Mumbai. The Elephanta Caves are characterised by rock temples carved out of the two hills that emerge from the centre of the island. It is said that the Portuguese named the island after the stone elephant they found here. At Elephanta you can see the cave shrine to Lord Shiva, which belongs to the sixth century and a massive three-header sculptor representing Braham the creator, Vishnu the preserver and Shiva the destroyer. You can also find the other interesting sculptures here including those that depict the marriage of Shiva and Parvati.
