Sahapedia Heritage Walk- Re-discovering the Historic Mandapesvara Caves

Mandapesvara Caves are located in the suburb of Borivali (West) in Mumbai. They belong to the Pasupata Sect which prescribed the worship of Lord Siva as Pasupati and are more or less contemporary to the Jogesvari and Elephanta caves. In the medieval period these caves came under the control of the Portuguese and were restored to some extent by the Archaeological Survey of India after India’s Independence.
