AMAZING AND PERFECTION

I was uncertain as to what a step well was. I was so taken aback at the marvel of this ancient construction. It is 1,000 years old. So deep, so perfect, so many steps.

As part of a tour by Magic tours we were taken by our driver to the Chand Boari Stepwell in the village of Abhaneri near Bandikui, Rajasthan. Nothing we had been told prepared us for this utterly stunning monument.This incredible square structure is 13 stories deep, and lined along the walls on three sides are double flight of steps. 3,500...

Some 60 miles out of Jaipur on the Jaipur-Agra road you can visit this step well. I must admit to never having heard of such a thing but having now seen it you realise how many there are in this region. This particular example is a stunning construction, a feat of ancient engineering with the depth, symmetry and number of... More

We stopped here on the way from Agra to Jaipur by road - it is a little off the main highway and is quite a small site but is absolutely fascinating to see. Almost like an optical illusion with the steps criss-crossing their way down to the water down in the well. You cannot climb down the steps (understandably, as... More

Its very nice place to visit for historical lovers. This is very much prominent for step-wall art. I think this is India's deepest and largest "Baori". Must visit in pleasant weather.

This well is located in the small ancient village of Abhaneri, India. It is one of the largest step wells in India, fortified on all sides. It was conceived by early natives to work as a water reservoir located adjacent to the temple dedicated to Harshat Mata, goddess of joy and happiness. There is also a wonderful camp site located...

This is one of the largest step wells in India. It is fortified on all sides. There is an iron fence around the site to preclude you from actually climbing on its steps.

The monument looks like a space craft from a sci-fi movie . With the intricate geometrical patterns and the labyrinth of staircases , it is a sight to behold . No wonder they told me that a couple of Hollywood movies were shot here . For those interested in Indian History , Architecture and have a dash of imagination -... More
