Overview

Head to the famous Elephanta Caves across the Mumbai harbor and take a boat ride to 1200-year old caves housing some of the most beautiful rock-cuts of the period. The famous Trimurti sculpture of three-faced Shiva depicting his three aspects as Creator, Preserver and Destroyer is powerfully portrayed in the massive sculpture.  Elephanta has been included in World Heritage Sites by UNESCO.

The outer caves were used as a place of Hindu worship until Portuguese rule was established. The caves further in are smaller and are Buddhist caves.The main cave, otherwise known as the Shiva Cave, contains numerous carvings throughout depicting various aspects of Lord Shiva including his wedding, his slaying of Andhaka and more.

There will also be a sculpture of the Trimurti in the main cave that is approximately 20 feet tall.  Other wings of the caves have shrines dedicated to Shiva’s sons, Kartikeya and Ganesh. Book and explore this UNESCO World Heritage site
