The first day of the two day Elephanta festival saw attendance of thousands of classical music and dance connoisseurs that also included a considerable number of foreign tourists. The Elephanta festival by the State Tourism Dept. started against a backdrop of the replication of the Trimurti Sadashiva – the three headed Shiva preceded by a Kuchipudi recital. The state tourism department has taken several initiatives to provide opportunities for tourists to explore new places and to boost cultural art forms across the state, the Elephanta Festival being one of them. Tourists are especially fascinated at the thought of attending shows on an island right in the middle of the sea. The festival provides visitors with a wonderful insight in to Indian art.
