This is a gem of a Baori in the middle of nowhere... not difficult to pack in if you are going to Jaipur or to Agra or to Alwar. One of the best stepwells I have ever seen. The nearby Harshat Mata temple is also fascinating.

When doing the Golden triangle trip, do NOT miss out on one of the least publicized but deepest stepwell in all of Rajasthan. This is the Chand Baori at Abhaneri. As detours go, it is not much of a detour and the town of Dausa is so run down that one does feel an occasional twinge of uneasiness at stopping... More

This place is relatively unknown. Situated in Duasa district district of Rajasthan, Chand Baori is a not known to many but it does has its visitors from traveler enthusiasts. I went to this place in November from Delhi by bus. To reach this place by bus from Delhi one needs to change the bus at Alwar and from Alwar take... More

One of the finest step-well I have visited which is almost 1200 years old and not far from there is also a temple in ruins. Around inside the step-well is also an ancient Hindu place of worship....

Heard of this beautiful step well -Chand Baori- at Abhaneri village, about 95 kms from Jaipur. After asking around we managed to reach it and it was really beautiful. A summer palace of sorts for the then kings, the well with the rooms, was built almost a 1000 years ago. It is about 19.5 yards deep and has 2000 steps... More

Recently in Nov 2014 we did the golden triangle via Tempo Traveller. A find on the internet in our planning phase led us to an architectural wonder. This step well had the kids in awww, and the grand parents ( originally from India) pleasantly surprised. There is not much else to do there than to see this engineering wonder with... More

Our driver said he was taking us to an old temple area in a small town. We didn't think much of it and wondered where he had taken us when we stopped in Abhaneri town. Then we walked into the well area - now that was unexpected to say the least! The well is huge and beautifully symmetrical. Amazing find... More

Nov 2014. Didn't know what to expect and oh what a wow this was. The huge scale of the engineering blew me away. If you are anywhere near Abhaneri, detour to see it and you will not be disappointed. ( the toilets will however, at your peril !! ) . 60 miles from Jaipur, 100 from Agra. Well ( excuse... More

We made a stop at a non-nondescript town called Abhaneri en route to Jaipur from Agra. Al though we knew of its existence through images , the symmetry at the site with the entire view is breathtaking...just fit for the summer residence and watering hole for a King (Chandra). The day we visited had a few Japanese tourists who took... More
