Elephanta caves are located at Gharapuri Island, a congregation of three small villages nearby Mumbai. These caves, which are declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, are frequented by domestic and foreign travelers alike. The caves are said to be dating back to the period between the 9th to 13th century AD & are famous for its ancient sculptures and the temple dedicated to Lord Shiva.

The prime deity in the temple is Ardhanarishwara, a blend of half man and half woman representing Shiva and Parvathy. The temple which is rock cut, is designed based on the Hindu astrological knowledge base, clearly taking into account the geometrical "Mandala" and energy levels.

Wonderful sculptures at the Elephanta Caves, depicting the three faces of Trinity, Brahma, Vishnu and Maheshwara , is a marvelous attraction here. All in all a must visit to take a glimpse into the countries rich history & heritage.
