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.

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.

If you love old architecture and historical sites, this would be a beautiful site to visit. The intricate details and thought with which infrastructure was created is so fascinating.

Locals / experts needs to vet whether they are same. The architecture of the well is attractive and better preserved. Recommended to do homework on learning the history of the place before visiting to appreciate the place better.

Built in 1500 for a lady of the Sultan's Harem, the walls and pillars again remin so fresh. This stepwell lies to the North east of the city but worth a taxi out. The walls and pillars are agaid decorated in what appears to be "samples" of beautiful decorations and carvings.

It would just amaze you, even wells were so elaborately decorated in those days. This beautiful structure is a step well that used to store water, acted as a retreat to travellers. Once you descend down the stairs you can feel that temperature has dropped. One word Ingenious!
