Hi,
Elephanta-Island and - temple is a halfday-tour.
I don't remember the cost, but it's not expensive to take one of the shuttle-boats at the Gate of India!
Have a nice trip!

Hi

There are ferries that come and go from Gateway to India to Elephanta a few times a day, so how long you spend there is up to you. We spent an afternoon exploring, I THINK that it cost us R200 each. Not absolutely sure of cost, but it is not much.
The caves also used to be closed on Mondays- so check times when you are in Mumbai. DRINK LOTS OF WATER- and beware of the monkeys. They grab whatever they can, especially food.

Hi Marieana - since the boat takes 2 hours total, figure a minimum maybe 2 hours more to explore. It can get very hot in the afternoon so you may want to try and go in the morning. The boats have an open deck and a covered deck. Once you get to the island there's a few minute walk - or you can take the small train to the bottom of a long flight of stairs to get to the caves. On both sides of the stairs are stalls/stands selling souvenirs, etc. Be sure to read up on the caves before you go so you'll know what you're looking at. :-)) Have a great time!

Hi you can get ferry from the Gate Way of India to Elephanta Caves. Its also called as the Gharapuri in the local Marathi language. The tickets are easilly available & cheap. Its actually a halfday tour. The ferry transportation will take one & half hour both sides.

To reach Elephanta Caves you need to take a fairy from The gate way of India.
The Fairy starts at 8AM and thats the best time to travel .
The fairy Fair would be 120INR and i would suggest you to pay 20rupee extra to get sit a seat on top.
Plus the entry ticket for the Elephanta Caves is aprx 5USD

Travel Tips for Mumbai

Mumbai Street Scenes

by Canadienne

I'd be lying if I said that I had not found Mumbai overwhelming upon arrival. The drastic change in climate (coming from a cold Toronto winter), the jet lag, the pollution, the crowds. . .on my first full day in the city, very little made sense. . .and very little seemed to go the way I wanted it to. But, rest can be a beautiful thing. . .and after a good night's sleep, the city seemed a little less daunting. The craziness of New Year's festivities were behind us. . .and I was able to find renewed excitement about the adventures ahead.

After two weeks travelling in Gujarat, returning to Mumbai felt like a homecoming. . .suddenly, the streets and city felt manageable. The urban pace and cosmopolitan facade were appealing to me (I am, admittedly, a city person at heart). . .the city encompasses all the contrasts and contradictions that continue to fascinate me today.

Take the mystery out of Science ... the easy way!!

by aadil

The Nehru Science Center (and Science Park) is a fun place to visit with kids to explain scientific principles simply to children and grown ups too!!! Takes the mystery out of science the easy way!!! Lots of interactive exhibits on display with a lot of info and hands on experience for most displays!!! Great fun to learn this way for children and adults alike!!! Lots of different galleries on Sound, Light, Mechanics, etc. that explain the fundamentals of science.

Also on display are a few old transportation vehicles like a horse drawn tram, steam engines and a HF-24 Indian Air Force aircraft too!!!

Lots of activities for children like telescope making, aeromodelling, HAM radio, etc are also conducted regularly. They also have a mini planetarium for mobile units which go to the rural areas for science exhibitions on wheels!!!

Timings are from 11am to 7 pm.
Telephone Number:- 24932667.

You will be amazed at the cultural diversity in Bombay. Although many languages are spoken throughout Bombay,most know/speak/understand English. Many religions are practiced. Churches, Mosques, Hindu Temples, Sikh Gurdwaras, Parsi Temples, Jewish Synagogues you name it and you will find it in Bombay. Watch out for cultural events that take place in specific halls/auditoriums throughout Bombay, by local newspaper,
radio, tv and internet. Adjoining pic: Esselworld near Malad

Brabourne Stadium

by ni3sgalave

Brabourne Stadium is a cricket ground owned by the Cricket Club of India (CCI). Located in the bustling city of Mumbai, the stadium had been the host of the test matches from 1948 to 1972.The stadium is to be found near Churchgate railway station in South Mumbai. It also comprises the headquarters of the BCCI, which is the governing body of Indian cricket.

Brabourne Stadium, once again, hosted the sporadic first-class match of 1997-98, where Sachin Tendulkar made the first double century of his career. The stadium is counted amongst the four grounds, which made the venue for 2006 ICC Champions Trophy. Almost after 11 years, the sports arena felt proud when the International Cricket revisited its ground in the sixth match of the qualifying round. This is one of the Oldest Stadium in Mumbai ....
