ELEPHANT ISLAND

Visited Elephant Island today. A magnificent set of cave temples 11 kilometres of the coast of Mumbai. Dated to a period of c. 600-635 A.D. Dedicated to the Indian God Shiva, a true testimony of creativity , skill and devotion of the craftsmen who made them. It’s so wonderful to venture into a country that has a strong connection to what has gone before, and yet is one of the fastest developing countries of the 21st century .
