I think that in all of our three week stay in india this is what I will remember the most, it is totally stunning and extraordinary. How this was built over a thousand years ago the mind boggles. One cannot really describe it or even photograph it's true magnificence you just must visit. We stayed the night at the abhaneri... More

We were taken here by our driver on our Taj & Tiger our of India. It was not part of our itinery but Satish thought that we would like to see it. It is a wonderful hybrid of Temple, Palace & step well. I've never seen anything quite like it & it is well worth a visit!

Chand Baori is beautiful! There isn't tons to see, but it's still worth the stop. The architecture is gorgeous & it's definitely one of a kind. Plan to use the bathroom before or after you go...and forego the porta potties. Also, avoid buying a snack, as they (not uncommonly) charge twice as much for (visable) tourists.

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

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
