A trip to the Elephanta Caves, off the Mumbai coast is generally a day’s outing, especially for those living in the northern parts of Mumbai, such as Kandivali. (Visitors to Mumbai would squeeze it in along with other sight-seeing.) So why not have the Trimurti, the symbol of Elephanta, literally right at your doorstep.
Way back in 2009, when we visited Mumbai for a holiday, we went to Elephanta island for a few hours during our day in the south of the city. My little boys were looking forward to the boat ride. And were pleasantly surprised to get a ride on the toy train. The walk up to the top was a bit tiring, but after some sitting around, they realised that caves could be exciting to explore!
