A visit to these caves is a must for any visitor of Mumbai. The Elephanta caves are a mute testimony of the Golden Age in Indian history during the Gupta period. They were built to honor Lord Shiva. Elephanta is a 3 kilometer-long elongated island, consisting of two hills separated by a valley. The caves with rock-cut figures and carvings are believed to be carved by the sculptures of Ajanta or Udayagiri.
