Maharashtra’s Impressive Elephanta Caves

My search for an attractive tourist destination in Mumbai ended when a friend of mine suggested me to visit Maharashtra’s famous Elephanta Caves – a UNESCO World Heritage site, which draws thousands of tourists everyday.

Surrounded by thick forest and Arabian Sea, the caves are divided in two parts – an array five caves and two Buddhist caves.

Perched on Elephanta Island, the collection of rock art is believed to be built during the mid-fifth to sixth centuries AD. According to Archaeological Survey Of India, a number of dynasties, including Chalukyas of Badami and Yadavas of Deogiri had their control over this majestic place.

Among all the caves, Cave 1 turned out to be impressive. The main cave includes Andhakasuravada murti, Nataraja; Kalyanasundara murti and Gangadhara murti.
In my opinion, the Elephanta Caves is a must place to visit for those who admire ancient art and architectures.

Exploring the entire place takes almost 1 and ½ hours. Elephanta Caves is just 10 kilometer away from the famous Gateway of India. The boat services for this place start at around 9am.
