As a history enthusiast, I loved Elephanta caves with their grandeur and rock-cut architecture. The huge stone sculptures like 'Trimurti' and 'Ardhnareshwar' blew my mind. The ferry ride to the island on which these caves are situated isn't so much fun for people like me who experience seasickness. I visited Elephanta caves in the month of June when the weather was hot and humid which makes the long walk till caves even more tiring. However, the shops on the way are good for shopping as they sell a variety of stuff like metal/shell jewellery, bags, souvenirs etc. at affordable prices (Rs. 50- 450). It is advisable to visit the place in winter months and carry a water bottle to stay hydrated.
