Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
Among the largest mega-cities in the world, Mumbai also has an anachronistic satellite island about an hour away from its shores. An island that is only a few kilometers away in space but hundred of years away in time. The Elphanta island.
Home to caves sculpted out of rock and decorated with figures and architectural artefacts, this world heritage site was created in the 6th -7th century.
The contrast between the hustle & bustle of Mumbai and the serenity of the caves cannot be explained – it has to be experienced.
Even the poorly taken photos on my phone-camera allow a glimpse of the beauty hidden away on the island.
