ELEPHANTA  CAVES 

This is 10 km (6.2 mi) far from Mumbai coastline from The Gateway of India Mumbai Harbour, it’s an island in Arabian Sea.  A typical (not Luxury) common boat / the catamaran runs between Apollo Bunder (The Gateway of India Mumbai Harbour ) and Elephanta Island.Earlier this island was called ‘Gharapuri’ and was a Hindu place of worship until Portuguese rule began in 1534. The Portuguese called the island ‘Elephanta’ on seeing its huge gigantic statue of an Elephant head at the entrance. That Statue is now in famous Museum ‘The Prince of Wales Museum’ in Mumbai. This is one of the best monuments of Buddhism and Hindus Religions Gods. Here are complex of sculpted caves which consist of two groups of caves—the 1st  is a group of 5 Hindu’s cave’s -  The Hindu caves contain rock cut stone sculptures, representing The Lord Shaiva Hindu.

And the 2nd is a smaller group of 2 Buddhist’s cave's. The rock cut architecture has been dated to between the 5th and 8th centuries, although the identity of the original builders is still unknown and search is still on. The caves are made from solid single rock. All the caves were also originally painted , but presently only outline remain.
This cave was renovated in the 1970’s after years of neglect, and was designated under ‘UNESCO’ - The World Heritage Site in 1987 to preserve the artwork. It is currently maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI)Here we are showing you the layout of the Elepthanta Cave Lay-out of Temples and caves with caves Numbers.
