Absolutely stunning architecture

It is very impressive the detail that was put into each level of the stepwell. Gorgeous area full of history and monkeys!

I enjoyed my short stroll around this step well, clicking pictures with my camera and getting lost in between all the pillars. Gorgeous carvings on the inside, the step well is very accessible for people traveling to Ahmedabad.

This place is a marvel in architecture, but badly needs attention of the authorities. It badly needs maintenance as this place has potential to attract lots of tourists
