Built in ancient times without any modern technology, is a master piece. Ensure that you visit the well bet 10.30 and 1.30 to have best photographs

Its a artificial well made in a geometrical architecture. Its like a 5 storey bliding constructed under the gound and made allm of stone where the rain water collects and fleet of stairs will guide you to the water. Near adalaj on SG highway is at close proximity and you get public transport at an ease.

Vav means stepwell! In ancient times, this was one of the way of water storage. But now due to a lot of stagnant water, insects and algae have become the major problem. Also the bad smell is a major restricting factor for tourists.

First of all, the mobile app lead to a place 500m away. After asking locals I could locate the place, which had similar build as that of Adalaj Step-well. It is very awkward to be a lone visitor, there were no boards, signs, markings, shops or anything which makes you comfortable. Thankfully few local kids were playing nearby, and it... More

We had a truly privileged visit to this remarkable place, but the lack of maintenance and supervision would leave you a little bit worried for the future of the place. We came to the site in a tuk tuk and our driver had to stop four or five times to ask directions before we finally found the place. There was... More

Amazing structure. Very badly managed by ASI. Not many visitors, and even difficult to find out as many people are not aware of the structure. But it is a real gem of a step-well. I would say, a must-go place for heritage lovers.
