This step well is definitely worth a visit. It is near the Gandhinagar airport. The wall carvings and pillars are magnificent and very detailed. There is a small temple before you enter the vav. It has got a nice glass mural on the wall.

unless you say, Adalaj ni Vav, most of them wont even know as to what you are referring. I had this personal experience, when my driver, missed this marvellous piece of architecture while on way to visit sun temple. Then the next day, using my tab to find the way, i found this was on the same route, which we... More

Adalaj step well is an architectural beauty. It has an aura to it. However the well isnt well maintained. Its carving has started deteriorating. All in all a good experience.

The summers in Gujarat can be extremely hot and dusty so if the water doesn't reach the surface then you have to start digging for it and find it. And when you find it you just build a nice well 5 stories below the earth and many steps to reach it. A perfect example of local architecture prowess and ingeniosity.... More

Very well maintained a beautiful historical place of India. A must visit place near Ahmedabad City. Free guide is available from archaeological department in side the step-well. As summer is bit hot, evening time is best to visit the place. Other than this any time is the best time to visit this place.

Constructed at cost of 5 Lacs Goldmuhars approx 520 Years ago, the step well consists of 5 storeys... More
