Gharapuri Island, also known as Elephanta Island, is the best known of the islands in Mumbai Harbour.
The Elephanta Caves located on the island are a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The group of five larger caves have intricate Hindu religious rock sculptures.
Two smaller caves have Buddhist religious sculptures.
Mumbai Harbour (Marathi: मुंबई बंदर Mumba'ī bandar), or Front Bay (sometimes referred as Mumbai Harbour), is a natural deep-water harbour in the southern portion of the Ulhas River estuary.
The narrower, northern part of the estuary is called Thane Creek. The historical island of Elephanta is one of the six islands that lie in the harbour.
Front Bay is the official name of the harbour, so named because the city started as a tiny settlement facing the harbour.
The waterbody behind the original settlement, forming an arc between the former Colaba island and Bombay island, up to the Malabar Hill promontory or peninsula, was similarly called Back Bay.
Front Bay is home to the Mumbai Port, which lies in the south section of the western edge of the harbour.
Jawaharlal Nehru Port and Navi Mumbai lie to the east on the Konkan mainland, and the city of Mumbai lies to the west on Salsette Island.
The Gateway of India with its jetty for Elephanta is the most important tourist destination, followed by the INS Vikrant maritime Museum.
