Mumbai Travel Guide

Elephanta Caves

Elephanta Caves

Located on Elephanta Island, in the Arabian Sea off the coast of Mumbai, the Elephanta Caves are a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an absolute must for visitors to Mumbai. The caves feature (the oldest of the four sects of Hindusm) stone sculptures of Hindu deities important to worshippers of Shiva. Many of the sculptures in the caves were unfortunately defaced by the Portuguese who, in the 17th century, used the sculptures as target practice. A fascinating and deeply rewarding excursion, visitors to Mumbai are strongly urged to make the trip to the Elephanta Caves a non-negotiable part of their travel itineraries.


Address: Elephanta Island
Opening Time: Boats depart from the Gateway of India every 30 minutes on Tuesday to Sunday, from 9am to 2.30pm
Admission: Admission to caves: Rs 250; Ferry ticket: Rs 120
