I don't think this place is visited by many tourists. Not many citizens of Ahmedabad would have visited this place. Not well maintained. A guard only available to show. Should have your own vehicle. Worth going.

Dada hari ni vav is a stepwell situated in the heart of the city near to the railway station. It is very beautiful. If maintained properly it can be best in the city.

If you have seen Rani ki Vav or Adalaj step well, you can skip this one - it is quite similar to Adalaj one - may be not as ornate

Since we did not have the time to visit Adalaj Step well, we decided to compensate it by seeing Dada Hari ki vav, :Vav means weel in Gujrati. The stair leading to the bottom are bearing wall carvings. There is also provision of spiral staircases. The place gives us excellent opportunity of taking snaps.

If you're short on time then this step well won't disappoint as it's quicker to get to from the city. It's certainly quieter than the more famous one, but all the features and stunning architecture are still there. Plus there's a Mosque next door with a great view from the rooftop.
