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

If you drive from Agra to Jaipur, Chand Baoli is on your way. It's worthy to stop by and walk down to the water ! This is a place that is not touristic and you'll have to sign you're name and nationality in the book kept at the entrance. You can walk around the place freely and just enjoy the... More

It is 10kms away from the main road joining Jaipur and Agra and well worst a visit. One of the top 10 nicest thing I've visited in India. It is free and a guide is available at the door if you wish (he asked 100rupees, but we were fine without).
