Wanted to visit Rani Ki Vav but due to lack of time visited Adalaj step well. It was well worth a visit. Wonderful architectural site. It was so nice to see a lot of design / architecture students sitting there and making drawings of the well and the intricate carvings

The concept of a step well and the purpose it was supposed to serve and the structure that was conceived off is in itself reason enough raise one curiosity to visit this place and then be "AMAZED". The place can be kept clean (smells of bat big time) the surroundings of the step well is also dusty and dirty to... More

Close to Ahmedabad, one of the few places to visit in Ahmedabad. It is a heritage site and well worth a visit. The carvings are good and we had the fortune of running into a guide. Like guides around India you may have to filter some information – but worth it for a nominal sum. Natural lighting is not very... More

Just a few kilometers away from city railway station this 10th century step-well is architectural marvel of medieval era. One already had been ro Rani Ki Vav at Patan however may choose to skip this place for lack of recreational activities around to keep your children engaged.

Located on the outskirts of the city, the Adalaj step well is definitely a one time must visit. The architecture is beautiful. There are levels going from top to bottom. It is nice to visit in the morning when the weather is cool.

It's a good place for architecture lovers but not so appealing because people have made a mess. The couples have made it more like a lover's park and a garbage dump. It's needs strict rules and cleanliness drive.
