An hour-long ferry ride from Mumbai reaches you to the Elephanta Island, a representative of the past eras. This island houses the ancient Elephanta Caves and you can explore the uniqueness of the bygone eras concealed in the nooks and corners of these caves.
Carved out of a solid rock and motivated by Shiaivism, the Elephanta Caves are bound to arouse in you a calm and reverential sense. As you walk past the skillfully carved sculptures, the pleasant rhythms of chisel and hammer strike the chords of your heart and bring about a stirring experience. Perfectly chiseled rock surfaces, skilfully done, near perfect carved sculptures, intensely cut chambers, intricate art exhibited in stonework, fine and mellow columns – all seek for undeviating, dedicated attention from its visitors. These deeply and perfectly sculpted pieces of art, found at this manifestation of relic India, allow you to perceive divination in the true sense of the term.

After you are done with your breakfast, our chauffeur, will pick you up at 8:30am from your hotel to kick start your trip to the Gateway of India followed by the grand Elephanta Caves.

The famous monument, the main tourist attraction in Mumbai, the Gateway of India is decked with four turrets and its yellow basalt stone structure has delicate latticework carved in it. The structure exhibits the amalgamation of Hindu and Muslim architectures. To the opposite of this grand monument, stands the rich and famous Royal TajMahal Hotel. This hotel is a witness of priceless memories of this glorious city. The Taj Towers located near the hotel is another appealing building for its wonderful architecture.

From the Gateway of India, you will be taken by a ferry boat to the Elephanta Island. The ferry boat is a type of luxury boat which ferries you around the harbor and reaches you to the lovely Elephanta Islands after a journey spanning nearly one hour fifteen minutes.

Now that you have reached the Elephanta Islands, let us throw light upon the whereabouts of what you can expect to find here.
After you reach the island, you have the option of walking on foot or taking a toy train to the main attractions of the place. Elephanta Island is a serene and spellbinding land blanketed in calmness and peace. The island is covered with lush green trees and monkeys dotting the place. It is advised that you do not carry food while strolling around to prevent troubles caused by the monkeys.

You will have to walk approximately 120 steep steps to get to the entrance of the temple, after you get down from the toy train. You might take the pony services offered, if you do not want to toil climbing up to the temple.

Spread over an area of nearly 60,000 square feet, the magnificent Elephanta cave complex comprises of massive rock carved temples, dating back to the ancient 5th century. These temples are sworn in the name of Lord Shiva, in particular. You will notice skilfully chiseled corridors and chambers as you walk through the temples. Treading past each bend, you will also find intensely sculpted art forms. Various images are depicted in the engraved rock surfaces, fluted pillars, dedicated, skillful stone work and structures chiseled out of the huge rocks. Catch a glimpse of the magnanimous Shivalingam, situated at the western end of the temple.

After you have completed touring the outstanding and exemplary Elephanta Island, you will be ferried back to the Gateway of India at 13:30 hrs. From the harbor, our appointed chauffeur will drop you back to your hotel, marking the end of the memorable tour.
