Elephanta Caves: Six miles (10 Kms.) across Bombay
harbor is a small Island called Elephanta or "Gharpure".
It contains a fine cluster of 6th-8th century
rock-cut caves. They were carved during the Golden
Age of the Guptas and inspired by the worship
of Lord Shiva. The sculptures are beautifully
executed and the most outstanding of these is
the Maheshmurthy or Trimurthy, a 4.5 meter high
three-headed bust hewn from a single rock, representing
the triple aspects of Shiva viz., the Creator,
the Preserver and the Destroyer.
