Hard to believe this incredible feat of engineering was accomplished in 800 AD. The complexity of the steps were like a living Escher drawing.A not-to-miss Indian experience.

As other fellow traveler's have already mentioned this place is nice. The only thing that I want to add is that carry your own food and water as there is nothing nearby this place. Also, it is not allowed to go in the step well as it is dangerous but if you get permission from Jaipur then you might be... More

This is one of those rare gems that tourists skip on their whirlwind tours. But to understand Rajasthan and it's history, this place cannot be missed. Around two hours from the heart of Jaipur, it is worth the time spent travelling. It is said to be the deepest step well in the world; and it sure looks so; over 13... More

Abhaneri is known for the Chand Baori step wells. The thought of people using these steps to carry water blows my mind. The well is beautiful and the steps are incredible. These wells were used as cool places of relaxation as well as water reservoirs during the hot times of the year. Apparently this well was used to wash the... More

Worth a detour on the way to Jaipur, since this amazing step well, built to harvest rainwater and provide bathing facilities for the local royals and their entourages is unique to European eyes. It's almost like looking at a falling block quilt, as the layers upon layers of steps reach the very bottom of the well. Unfortunately our guide (a... More

I really liked this place - it is a well where 2 rivers meet. Thats it really but its the construction of it and its purpose - huge deep well that rises with the monsoon and you go down the steps to get your water and walk back up. Simple but yet fascinating. Set in a quiet village called Abhaneri... More

Do visit this place only if you are like archaeology. Frankly there is not much to do except walk around this step well, click pictures and admire the carvings and sculptures placed around the well. We took the aide of the guide to show us around. Mr Meena was quite knowledgeable and took interest in history. the well is indeed... More

This attraction is not evident from the road, but once you walk into the site it feels magical. Being a mathematician I love symmetry and patterns, and the step well has some pretty cool features.

One would really wonder how this well was made. There are innumerable number of steps leading the water. A number of movies have been shot here including the Dark Knight rises.
