This baori is not that big which you see in pictures/images.. baori is okay okay..... You are not allowed to step inside, you cannot climb the stepwell or run on them. Architecture is beautiful, I suggest If you are on your way from alwar towards agra.. so this comes in between. You should visit.. going specially for this not worth.

When travelling from AGRA TO JAIPUR this incredible location is a must see. Most people don't go there because it is a little bit hidden at a very small village. It is really incredible to see the mathematical and geometrical perfection with which this immense and gigantic construction is made and that more than 1400 years go. You don't need... More

Our driver stopped there on our way to Ranthampore and we were quite astonished by the mathematical and geometric perfection of the steps and by the scale of the well. Do not miss it

Historic place and example of great architecture, constructed 1400 years ago, village name Abhaneri. One can feel the historic importance of that baori. "Baori" is a well with steps for access which was used in ancient time for ground water. This is one of the oldest and biggest baori. Dont forget to hire a guide. Abhaneri is 86 kms from... More

I came across some pictures on the Internet for the place and I decided to pop in while I was travelling from Jaipur to Agra (Taj Mahal). You definately need a car, because it is 20 minutes driving off the main road, but it is totally worth it. The place is really impressive, and the water tank is really deep.... More

It is a welcome short break between Fatehpur Sikri and Jaipur. No need to hire any guides. It is really interesting how they built this to take care of the water problem. If you have not seen any big baori till date, then it would be a good experience.

It's really interesting to think about how long ago this structure was built, and how wonderfully symmetric it is. Worth the visit!Sad part is that we can't access the steps due to a fence blocking it. Also, two people at the entrance ask for tips after we filled their guestbook, and that was annoying.

I read somewhere about it and saw a picture of this baori. During the month of October 15, I visited this baori while going from Jaipur to Alwar via Agra highway. After taking a turn on the Alwar road, it is about 10-15 KM and just about 3 KM from the main road. Approach road to this Baori is very... More

One of the most fascinating step well I have ever seen. Beautifully maintained with no entry fees. A must visit spot on Jaipur - Agra Highway.
