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.
