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

Amazing step well 100 feet deep. Wonderful example of man's early technical and building abilities. Alongside a wonderful recently found temple, rebuilt from fragments found around the area.

Our guide said he was taking us to see a step-well on the drive from Agra to Jaipu, I did not expect very much. This view continued as we parked in the small car park in Abhaneri town and we made our way past a few scruffy shops to the entrance. We were expecting a small well, with a spiral... More

On the way from Agra to Jaipur, we took a slight detour to the town of Abhaneri to see the famous step well there. I would highly recommend seeing this as it is like no other well I have ever seen. The geometric step patterns leading down to the water are fascinating. We had a guide who explained that this... More

The site was a few km from the agra jaipur road. you walk in and immediately your breath is taken away by the size of the hole and the steepness of the sides. What was nice is that there are very few vistors so it is very quiet. I loved the carved elephants under the eaves of the building...though you... More
