Start the tour by boarding a boat at Mumbai Gateway. From there, we will cruise our way to Elephanta Caves.

Upon arrival on Elephanta Island, you will see an 8th century shrine cut from the hillside. Here, you will also see sculptures, among which the magnificent "Maheshmurti" or Hindu Trinity is located. It represents the three aspects of Shiva the Creator, the Preserver and the Destroyer.

The caves provides an exciting glimpse of Indian sculpture dating way back in 600 A.D. Huge panels depict episodes relating to Lord Shiva, each executed with power, grace and an amazing sense of movement.
