and producer of maximum films in the world has been nothing short of
meteoric. Mumbai's Gothic architecture is embodied in important
buildings. magnificent caves of ELEPHANTA (9th to 12th century AD)-
contains beautiful relief, sculptures, and a temple to the Hindu god
Lord Siva. AJANTA - where the thirty Buddhist caves are cut into the
steep face of a deep rock gorge sit in silent contemplation. Feel the
aura and power left behind by the Buddhist monks living 2000 years ago.
Compare these with the dynamism and energy radiating from the huge Hindu
