Usually held in January, organised by the MTDC, this two-day festival of music is held at the historic Banganga Tank.. Performers are usually exponents of classical vocal and instrumental music, and its beautiful setting and soothing music provide a charming ambience. Proceeds from the sale of tickets go towards the conservation, upkeep and maintenance of the Banganga temple complex.
Against the dramatic fašade of the cave temples, this festival of dance and music is held in the early part of the year, usually in February. Also organised by the MTDC, the event involves a boat ride from the Gateway of India to the Elephanta Islands.
