Description

A renowned Unesco World Heritage Site, the Elephanta Caves are one of Mumbai’s most spectacular temple sites, boasting precious collections of Hindu temple art. In fact, Elephanta’s cave-temples date back to 600 AD, named after the elephant statue that once stood near the island’s shore.

To start the day of discovery, we’ll take you to the busy Sassoon Docks, one of Mumbai’s oldest ports. Then, we’ll explore the beauty of the Afghan Church (one of our favourite churches in South Mumbai). Finally, we’ll hope on a ferry to witness the majestic religious wonders housed within Elephanta Caves.

On Elephanta Island, you’ll wander through a web of subterranean caves. These caves hold highly prized statues of Shiva and other deities, as well as shrines, pillars, courtyards and halls, that are all carved out of rock. Listen to the tales and stories behind these sites. We’ll end the day with a delicious lunch with a local family in Mumbai.
