Trip Overview

Elephanta Caves are architecture in its most natural form. The Elephanta Caves in Mumbai are a perfect example of caves that have preserved historical art in its most natural form- through paintings and carvings on the walls. The caves attract millions of tourists every year since they hold both historic and religious importance. The ancient art is a great portrayal of what creativity was like in the 7th century. The caves have a rich historical background dating back to the time of the Mahabharata, which will be explained to you in detail by our experienced guides. The walls of the caves are covered in illustrations of Indian gods and goddesses such as Lord Shiva, Goddess Parvati and Lord Natraj. The extra effort invested in maintaining these caves has preserved its aura over thousands of years. The ideas and artwork embellished on the walls of the cave hold strong religious value even today. The beauty of the caves is intact till date. It’s the perfect tour for you to capture some amazing art on camera.

Our Mumbai Elephanta caves tour covers both the sets of caves- Hindu caves and Buddhist caves. It’s a full day tour, and transportation includes a short ferry ride, which is equally fun and an experience in itself. This will be booked for you way in advance.
