Elephanta Island

A little more than half a day trip to Elephanta Island away from noise and pollution of Mumbai city is worth spending.

Elephanta Island!!!!!!!!!! A strange name and it brings thoughts of visiting statues of Elephants and their role in Hindu religion but to my amazement there are no statues of elephant or anything related to Elephants. Actually there was a big statue of elephant before which now moved to Veer Jijamata Udyan formerly known as Victoria Gardens. Its might have broken to pieces when tried to move from Elephanta Island.

I had passed by this island many times by boat as my first ship used to discharge cargo near to this Island. I have been planned to visit this place since first time I came to Mumbai but only after 7 years I got opportunity to visit this place.

Thanks for stopping by my page and I hope you enjoy reading.

This famous statue is not orginal one but this you can find before climbing on to hills in a restaurant garden. I took picture of it as it really made with skills and lot more details are visible on it than the original one.

    Elephanta Island is a very interesting place to visit. When I was there it was much greener around the caves, but than it was monsoon and rained too much. Great and informative tips!
