Visit to Elephanta (Mumbai, India)

Educational Activities

Volunteers of New Acropolis Khar Branch set off on a cultural excursion to Elephanta, across the Mumbai harbor. The site is home to ancient rock cut cave temples, dedicated to the various manifestations of Lord Shiva. Despite the mainstream historical narrative, HP Blavatsky suggests that the antiquity of the caves perhaps dates to the time of the Pandavas. Through a symbolic investigation of various mythologies, it was an opportunity for members to reflect on their studies at New Acropolis, by recognizing the repeating philosophical themes transmitted through the sculptural masterpieces.
