Day 1


This morning we visit Elephanta Caves: dating back to somewhere between 450-750AD, the rock-cut caves are a collection of shrines, courtyards, inner cells, grand halls and porticos brimming with exquisite stone sculptures of Hindu Gods and Goddesses and located approximately an hour’s boat ride from the Gateway of India.

After a break for lunch, we take in the Gateway of India – one of India’s most endearing land-marks and the point where visitors originally arrived at the country, it also symbolises the former power of the British Raj. Perhaps sample bhelpuri (Mumbai’s favourite snack) at Chowpatty Beach along what is known as Marine Drive. Later visit the Rajabal clock tower, the Jain Temple and Dhobi Talao before delving into the Prince of Wales Museum where you have the opportunity to see some of the rarest, most ancient exhibits of Indian history.

Next, soak up the serenity of the Hanging Gardens, also known as the Ferozeshah Mehta Gardens, which were laid out in the early 1880’s over Bombay’s main reservoir. We finish in Crawford Market, possessing has elements of both the Flemmish Architecture and looks like it would seem more comfortable in Victorian London.
