Mumbai – Elephanta caves

From Goa, we landed in Mumbai on Saturday Dec 2 and we were met by a nephew who runs a marketing company in Mumbai. We stayed with him for 4 days. He was a wonderful and gracious host.

Elephanta Caves – About 11 kms from Mumbai icon called the India gate (built to welcome King Geroge V in 1914), we took a ferry to the island, climed a few steps before we were both carried up to the cave area.

The caves here are for hindu God Shiva. The portugese discovered and annihilated some of the statues. This is also a world historical monumant.

They have also detailed carvings and majestic caves.

A Gallery in Mumbai – We went to an art gallery in downtown Mumbai and saw some wonderful modern paintings.
