Vibrant Penang – Part 1

Penang Island’s George Town is probably the most vibrant city of Malayisa. A trip to Malaysia is incomplete without a visit to George Town. This capital city is home to hundreds of cute cafes, bars and restaurants. Famous for its unique street food, George Town has been inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. And this is where you will find a lot of graffiti and murals, which lure thousands of travelers to this city. And to be honest, I explored the city randomly. Beer and street food made the trip memorable. Have you been to this part of Malaysia ?

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.
