Enchanting Elephanta - Not Just an Island 
Nestled close to the coastline of Bombay is the mysterious island of Elephanta, home to the breathtaking Elephanta caves. Carved into the rock at the top of the island is an ancient temple to Lord Shiva, built by a long-lost dynasty. The temple has just about survived the ravages of the centuries to tell the story of one of Hinduism’s most charismatic deities in sculptures of marvelous elegance and beauty. Hop On to the Elephanta tour and bear witness to the grand pantheon of Shaivite mythology – Shiva as the meditating yogi, the destroyer of demons, the handsome husband of the goddess Parvati, and as the massive three-headed Lord of all creation. The ferry ride to the island has its own charms, with stunt-performing seagulls, dolphin sightings and a unique view of the Mumbai coastline.
