Mumbai: Elephanta Caves and Colaba market

On our third day in Mumbai we took a day trip to Elephanta Caves, temple and meditation place dedicated to god Shiva, located on a tiny island about an hour from Mumbai and inhabited more by monkeys than people. The carvings and statues inside the caves were magnificent and we really enjoyed learning about the story of Lord Shiva and his wife Parvati by the locals. Before heading back we spent some time at the Colaba market in Mumbai, were we always go to buy Indian handmade accessories like the ones I'm wearing in this post. The jacket I got one day before we left home from -believe it or not- Zara. I saw it in a store and subconsciously reached for the label, which said Made in India. That kind of made it a sure purchase for me!
