OverviewHide
Embark on a day of archeological discovery as you journey to Elephanta Island to explore its magnificent temple caves dating back more than 1500 years. A panoramic boat ride takes you from Mumbai to this island of mystery and intrigue. Upon arrival, find yourself enveloped in a verdant green realm where monkeys scamper about and history looms overhead. Trek up the 124 steps leading to the Elephanta Caves to discover this extraordinary network of temples carved into the solid rock. Enter the enormous carved pillars of the main cave to find a remarkable sculpture of Shiva spanning some 18 feet and depicted the god in his three aspects, as Creator, Protector and Destroyer. Explore the temples before journeying back to Mumbai on a cruise that provides a stunning perspective of the Gateway to India and the city’s gleaming skyline – one more epic discovery to add to the day.
