Elephanta Caves, located on Elephanta Island are the most picturesque Hindu caves dating back to the 4th to 5th century BC. The Elephanta Caves tour is a fascinating way of learning one of the oldest religions available to mankind: Hinduism, which is over 5000 years old and the abode of one of the most popular Hindu gods – Lord Shiva.

The Elephanta Caves complex has a rich and beautiful collection of holy shrines, courtyards, inner cells, grand halls, and porticos arranged in a splendid symmetry of Indian rock-cut architecture, and filled with exquisite stone sculptures of Hindu God Shiva and his wife Goddess Parvati.

Our Mumbai Elephanta group tour, led by a local and professional tour guide will explain the fascinating mythological stories and interesting history behind every statue and a great way to understand Hindu mythology and God Shiva.

In 1987, Elephanta Caves were designated a UNESCO World Heritage site to preserve the fantastic artwork.

We welcome you to join us for an ode to Lord Shiva though there are around 120 footsteps to climb but is surely worth a visit!
