Elephanta Caves: Carve out of solid rock, the Elephanta Caves date back to 600 AD. It is very beautiful and it attract you to visit again and again. It attracts more visitors each year than the entire city of Mumbai. The cave complex is a collection of shrines, courtyards, grand halls, inner cells and porticos arranged in the splendid symmetry of Indian rock-cut architecture, and filled with exquisite stone sculptures of Hindu Gods and Goddesses. It is located on Gharapuri Island in Mumbai's harbour, about an hour's boat ride from the Gateway Of India can take you easily to this magnificent place. At the entrance to the caves is the famous Trimurti, the celebrated trinity of Elephanta : there's Lord Brahma the Creator, Lord Vishnu, the preserver and Lord Shiva the Destroyer. Unfortunately, many of the sculptures inside the cave have been damaged by iconoclastic Portuguese rulers who took potshots at Hindu Gods with their rifles. And yet somehow, nothing has disturbed the sublime beauty of this place for centuries.
