DESCRIPTION:

The 6th-century rock-cut cave temple on Elephanta island, in the middle of Mumbai harbour, is the home of Shiva, the greatest of all Hindu gods. Elephanta leads the reader through this magnificent cave temple, examining its overall architectural scheme and interpreting the myths of Shiva that are depicted so forcefully in the extraordinary stone sculptures. The outstanding photographs capture the beauty and magic of the cave.

This book also contains fascinating accounts of European travellers, documenting their discovery of Elephanta from the 17th century onwards and includes information on the ongoing efforts to preserve this monument that was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1987.
