Visiting the Elephanta Caves threw me into a reverie, almost instantly pushing me into a world of awe, wonder and astonishment. The carving of Bhairava struck fear into my heart the moment I looked upon it, and when was this carved? 10,000, 15,000 years ago? Who was the sculptor who could strike fear into my heart so many thousands of years later? I wish I knew his name, and thank him or her. The sculpture of the beautiful Goddesses left me with respect and wonderment.
Don't miss visiting this place. The place isn't very well taken care of, but it's survived this long, hopefully it'll survive another 20,000 years or more...
The short boat ride to the island costs about Rs.150. Catch the boat from the Gateway of India location.
