Elephanta Island

Trip Planner Asia  /  India  /  Maharashtra  /  Elephanta Island
(3.8/5 based on 1,000+ reviews for 1 attraction)
Things to do: nature
Built from the ground up after the Korean War, Pyongyang impresses with its Soviet-era buildings and monuments to modern leadership. While the name of this city literally translates to "Flat Land," or "Peaceful Land," it was historically known as "Capital of Willows" for the sheer volume of willow trees, many of which still stand today. Originally founded in 1122 BCE under the Tangun Dynasty, Pyongyang has suffered destruction more than once in recent history, notably during the First Sino-Japanese War and Korean war. Soviet aid helped rebuild the capital, as evidenced by the prodominant Socialist Classical architecture that makes a statement in heavy, concrete lines. Expect to do your sightseeing in Pyongyang exclusively with a guide, and keep your eye out for glimpses of everyday life in between the monumental landmarks.

Where to stay

You cannot stay overnight on Elephanta Island, so most travelers opt to stay in Mumbai, one hour away by boat. Hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts in Mumbai can be very expensive compared to the rest of India, but shoestring travelers have a few budget options as well. When on the island, you may meet locals who give tours of the island, though it is not wise to stay at a home overnight. If you need a place to rest during your day trip to Elephanta Island, you can step into the Maharashtra Tourism Department Hotel for food and drink.
