One of the most bizarre places I've seen in my life until now. I saw this in several movies (The Fall, Batman The Dark Knight Rises,...) and began to search where this place was because I love Temples, buildings etc. I integrated in my India Trip and it was worth all the effort! Unique in the world...

It is located opposite Harshat Mata Temple and was constructed in 800 AD.[] Chand Baori consists of 3,500 narrow steps over 13 stories. It extends approximately 100 ft into the ground making it one of the... More

One of the largest step wells in India. A marvel of engineering, architecture and construction. A way to collect rainwater in an arid place, somewhere to stay cool on swelteringly hot days, and a thing of great beauty. India has many lessons to teach us.

It took us nearly two hours to get there by car from Jaipur. Upon arrival you will be offered a guide (for around Rs200). I would suggest that you accept this offer because there is a lot of history in this 1000+ year old structure and the guides seem to know their stuff. The actual well is fenced off so... More

A very interesting and intriguing piece of our history. Must visit for anyone visiting Jaipur or travelling through this place. Just about 5-10 kms off the Jaipur - Agra Highway. Take a turn for "Bandikui" on the highway.

On our interesting road trip from Agra to Jaipur we went to have a look at Chand Baori in the little village of Abhaneri. One of India's biggest and deepest Step Wells all made from well carved blocks it is a very unusual construction for us to view. Built by King Chanda in about 800 AD it's many stone steps... More

We chanced upon Chand Baori during our visit to Alwar district in east Rajasthan. Chand baori is not easy to locate, but worth the hunt! One of the deepest stepwells in the world, it's unlike many that you usually see in Gujarat (another State replete with stepwells). Perfectly carved symmetrical steps, about 90-100 ft deep, creating an aesthetic stone maze.... More

It is one of the deepest and largest stepwells in India. 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. Chand Baori consists of around 3,500 narrow steps over 13 stories. It extends approximately 100 ft into the ground.... More
