The world-famous Elephanta Island, known for its cave temples, that makes it a UNESCO World Heritage Site, would get regular electricity soon.
The Elephanta Island is located around seven nautical miles off the Gateway of India and is a popular tourist destination. Administratively, it comes under the Uran taluka of Raigad district of Maharashtra.
“The world-renowed tourist destination of Elephanta Caves Island will soon get regular electricity with investment of Rs 28 crore in power infrastructure,” Governor C H Vidyasagar Rao told the joint session of Maharashtra legislature on the opening day of budget session.
Over the years, the 1,200-odd residents of Elephanta Caves have been demanding regular power supply. “The government will lay an underwater power cable network between mainland Mumbai and the island,” sources in the BJP-Shiv Sena saffron alliance government said.
