Itinerary

Shore Excursion Details -Journey to Elephanta Caves

The Elephanta Caves are an intricate network of beautifully sculpted caves, six miles east of Mumbai. On this guided Mumbai tour, you’ll witness unbelievable sculptures and understand why The Elephanta Caves are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Afterward, you’ll drive by noteworthy sights and enjoy an authentic Indian lunch. This unique Mumbai tour is ideal for newcomers to India, photographers, and anyone looking for a rich cultural experience at a low price.

Begin your Mumbai tour with a pleasant drive from your port toward the Gateway of India, a prominent arch monument. Transfer onto a ferry and enjoy a relaxing cruise to the Elephanta Caves. A professional guide will provide fun facts about the scenic landmarks you see on the way, such as Butcher’s Island, a historic jetty for oil tankers.

As you reach the north point of the coast, Elephanta Island will emerge as a lush green paradise. From there, you’ll walk about a mile to the Elephanta Caves. A cluster of masterfully sculpted caves awaits your exploration.

Marvel at perhaps the greatest example of Indian rock-cut art and architecture dating to the fifth century. The sculptures are noteworthy for their forms, dimensions, alignment, execution, and spiritual themes. Cave 1 is the most prominent sight, with a 23-foot high Sadashiva monument dominating the entrance. The stunning sculpture represents the three aspects of Shiva: Creator, Preserver, and Destroyer. All works in the Elephanta Caves are preserved in their natural setting, allowing you to appreciate Western India’s most historic achievement in the field of rock architecture.

After exploring the Elephanta Caves, your guide will lead you on a short walk to the top of the island. Cannon Hill is a verdant setting, ideal for memorable photographs. Afterward, you’ll navigate back to the Gateway of India and enjoy an authentic Indian lunch and beverages at a nearby restaurant (included).

Enjoy a drive to a few more landmarks before being returned to your port. These include Fort (a vibrant business district) and Colaba (Mumbai’s art center, renowned for high-end boutiques).
