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.

Vav is a step well which is known as 'Bawadi" in other parts of the country. This vav is not fully open but the steps are covered with floors and pillars. There are open spaces for light to enter. The carvings in the yellow sandstone is quite attractive. The water in the well did not look clean and potable. This... More

The place is not as fancy as Adalaj stepwell but it is worth a visit, the mosque behyind the step well is beautiful. I have to say one of the best little mosque I ever saw. I hope the government maintain the place well, we cannot afford losing a heritage.

Dada Hari Ni Vav is a beautiful step-well. Quaint, well-kept and intriguing. The well has an interesting interplay of shadows and light for the photographically inclined; and it is an architectural wonder. So well proportioned that it grows on you as you enter it, and gradually reveals itself as you walk deeper down the steps. Ahmedabad is home to two... More

Its situated in the city of Ahmedabad, its the same concept of Adalaj step well, not sure which is been built first. But if we compare both then Adalaj is much better place to see, this place is not maintained at all, even it seems that not much tourist visit this place.

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.
