Elephanta island, 10kms from Mumbai City has beautifully erected ancient Caves. These Caves demonstrate big rock cut sculptures on the walls representing mythological themes and stone carved images of Lord Shiva in the first Cave followed by smaller Caves uphill after a small trek. Trekking beyond Caves leads to Cannon hill overlooking the harbor.
This beautiful island is a must visit place for its Arabian Sea view and lush greenery.
Ferries from Gateway of India take tourists to Island. Ferry rides give a beautiful view of Gateway from the sea.
