The Elephanta Festival

Information On All Maharashtra Festivals - Festivals Celebrated in Maharashtra

 

In February Elephanta, from small island near Mumbai, is a favored destination for culture lovers. It is the site of the Elephanta Festival, the soothing residence of Lord Shiva, Gharpuri. Once known as Puri or Gharapuri, the island was the proud capital of a powerful coastal kingdom.

 

It was named Elephanta by the Portuguese, who took possession of it several centuries later, and found a monolithic stone elephant at the place they first landed.


The Elephanta caves are a showcase of legends created around Lord Shiva, beautifully presented here in all his splendor in the rock cave temples. Every year, renowned dancers and musicians perform outside the caves, beneath a star-studded sky, to a select and appreciative audience.
