Visit the Elephanta Caves, a UNESCO World Heritage site, which is the site of a collection of temples dedicated to the Hindu God of Shiva. Upgrade your booking to include roundtrip ferry tickets to Elephanta island.  Discover the historical site got its name because it was found with elephant statues by colonial Portuguese soldiers.  After an hour-long ferry from Gateway of India, arrive Elephanta Island filled with carved rock masterpieces and sculptures depicting stories of Shiva.  Take an hour’s walk and climb 120 steps to the plateau, where you will show your ticket to enter the caves.  Each cave has a unique feature: one is a large Hindu cave, the other is a Buddhist cave, and the final one is a cave dedicated to the God Shiva with a massive three-headed Shiva sculpture. Explore the seven major excavations in the area and see the artifacts and structures found inside them.  Admire stunning halls supported by huge pillars and learn about India's religious history along the way.
