The boat

This is the typical boat that is used to ferry people across people between the Gateway of India and the Elephanta caves. The Elephanta island is located about 13 km away from the Gateway of India at Mumbai. These caves house rock cut temples dating back to the 5th century.

  4. How many people get ferried across each year?

    Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. We now have broadband - though the connection is either low or good. I'm looking forward to visiting your blog more regularly. Please bear with me. Have a great weekend!

  5. Nice photo of the boat.
    I have visited Elephanta caves many times, but the most memorable visit was when I was dating Jitu in my college years.
    Beautiful caves and a breathtaking view from the island, chirping of birds, the calm and quiet surroundings make it a very memorable visit.
