Tour description

This 4-hours of a private tour will take you to Elephanta Island from Bombay. With two conical hills emerging from its centre, Elephanta is an island only accessible by (motor) launch boat. About two thirds up the height of the two hill lie the excavation sites for which Elephanta is celebrated. Scholars suggest that the Rock Temples on these hills, that are decorated with a large number of beautifully carved sculptures of Hindu gods and goddesses can be dated back to the 8th century. You will be accompanied by a private English speaking guide in a fully air-conditioned vehicle.
