Un lugar que merece ser visitado, pero es recomendable tomar un guía local sino podría decepcionarse viendo estatuas que fueron mutiladas por, de acuerdo al guía, por los portugueses que descubrieron la isla.
Hay incluso una bala incrustada en la piedra.
Las cuevas están talladas en la roca que es granito sólido las columnas y las estatuas forman son también talladas y muestra las distintas forma del Dios Siva, como Dios reflexivo, guerrero y creador, su matrimonio con

This was one of the top destinations of our trip to Mumbai - it was fantastic! It's a great way to spend most of the day. I would suggest getting a guide - they aren't expensive and they help you understand what you are looking at. plenty of shops and places for local food, but the caves are the main destination. Highly recommended!

Uwaga na małpy!
Wykute w skale świątynie robią wrażenie. Spora dewastacja miejsca, ale gdy słońce praży znakomicie jest tam się schronić

An unique world heritage site, magnificent and beautiful. The caves are well maintained, toilet and resting areas are there, many eateries including MTDC hotel are there. The 1st cave is majestic, the rock cut statues and reliefs are beautiful. Also the 1.5 hour boat ride to the island is relaxing and enjoyable. Two things only which we observed could be improved, 1st - there was no numbering or way board for the caves, we have missed the Buddhist caves (cave 6 & 7) for that. Another is there were numerous shops lined the climbway upto the hill top, and those completely blocked the view if the hill and sea.
A must visit while in Mumbai.

Elephanta caves, Dt. Raigad, Maharashtra, India.

Following Mudras of Lord Shiva carved out during n from Chalukya Dynasty from a single rock are hosted here.

They are
1. Nataraj
2. Yogiraj
3. Andhakasur wadh
4. Kalyan sundar murti
5 Gangadhar shiv
6. Sadashiv - The Central Idol with 5 faces, only 3 in front, one on back and one at Top.
7. Ardh-narishwar
8. Saaripat play with Maa Parvati
9. Ravan Anugrah

The caves and all the idols are carved out of a single rock starting from Top to Bottom.

Volcanic lines can be seen on all idols in mild red colour thereby indicating that the rocks were engulfed in volcanic ash hundreds of years before and the caves came in 7th or 8th century.

It was believed by Portuguese n Brush Archeologists that the God idols are of some bad omen or demons but later with new Archeologists shading more light on idols, above 8 Mudras are agreed n then studies started n still underway.

All the 8 Mudra idols look at each other in diagonal positions. Lakulisha idol is also seen who was the founder of Pashupata Sect.
Fearing the huge sculptures and to erode the fear, Portuguese Soldiers practiced giri g and few bullets can be seen still embedded in the idols.

Few caves n idols can be clearly seen as
1st level sculptures i.e. done by new learners on relatively soft stones.

2nd level of artisans made broader outline of the sculptures in rock but only

3rd kevel if artisans were permitted to carbs out the finessed idols.

Rang chakr is also comparatively Intact where
Colour mixing n allied works were performed either for paintings done on ceiling or for localised performances.

Though the idols are torned n brutally fired at by Portuguese, the beauty and hand magic of the artisans can be witnesses after hundred of years today as well.

The heritage walk was conducted u der auspicious of फिरस्ती group from Pune and Mr. Anurag Vaidya Contact number 8308810194 and Mr. Daiwat - A Local Guide duly qualified from IIT M / contact number 9757253383, were our guides and commentators.

We visited the Elephanta Caves in Mar'20. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the cave temples predominantly dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. The caves nicely depict the Indian culture and ancient architectural techniques, though mostly depleted. It is around one-hour boat ride from Mumbai dock / Gateway of India to the Island. The return fare of boat ride is Rs. 205 per head. The boat ride was a refreshing experience with cool breeze and watching seagulls flying pretty close or quietly floating on the water.

Once reached the Island, there is an option of toy train @ 10 per head or walk to reach the main attractions, there is a fee of Rs. 5 per head to enter the site. There is around 120 steep steps leading to the cave, several small stalls selling different souvenir items and tiny restaurants are lined-up on both side of the stairs. The climb may be tedious however, if require, one can take rest in between to regain the breathing. The entry fee in the caves temple is Rs. 40 per head. The cave temples are associated with some interesting ancient history and to know the same, hiring a local guide @ Rs. 500 is recommended.

The Elephanta Caves contain rock cut stone sculptures of Lord Shiva and Hindu mythology, however most of the artwork is defaced and damaged by the Portuguese soldiers. Presently, it is maintained by the Archaeological Survey of India to prevent further damage to the caves. Beware of monkeys and avoid carrying food stuff to avert encounter with them. A visit is recommended.
