Elephanta Caves in Series: Its incredible pathway

Elephanta Island or Gharapuri (is a small village on the south side of the island) meaning ‘the city of caves’, is located 11 km east of  Apollo Bunder at Mumbai and can be reached by a ferry from the Gateway of India.

The Elephanta caves is a network of rock cut architecture caves, hewn from solid basalt rock and consists of important sculptures, art historians have dated the caves in the range of late 5th to late 8th century AD.

I visited this place to display its richness before the world through my photography skill.
