The caves were designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987 as per the cultural criteria of UNESCO: the caves “represent a masterpiece of human creative genius” and “bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to a civilisation which is living or which has disappeared”.  (Source: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elephanta_Caves)
