Elephanta consists of two groups of caves – the first is a group of five Hindu caves and the second is a group of two Buddhist caves. This book takes readers on a splendid journey through the magnificent cave temple, studying its architectural genius and trying to interpret the myths of Lord Shiva depicted brilliantly in the spectacular stone sculptures. With a large number of outstanding photographs and information on the ongoing attempts to preserve the monument that was declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987, the book serves as a riveting guide to a truly sublime, historical wonder.
