Unlike Chand Baoili, this step well has no annoying tourist traps and no crowd at all. Was greeted by cows and dogs, and i roamed the place like a child in rustic wonderland. No fence around the steps so i was able to climb down. Be careful as the waters are 30-40 m deep. Truly a haven for photographers. The... More

Don't miss it. Every bit as good as described by others, Escher like. Truly special. Got some great pics of the kids diving and swimming

I had seen the step well in Ahmedabad, and this one was just as impressive. The architecture was different. Very easy to reach from the Fort and well worth the visit.

It is easy to reach from the Amber fort. A 5 min drive from the rear entrance which is the one taken by vehicles to the fort. Seems like this one is a hidden gem which has hardly any tourists at all. The entry is through narrow bylanes & it is easy to see that it isn't frequented by tourists... More

I was not familiar with step wells and was stunned by the geometric complexity and beauty of this site. Only one or two people there - hidden gem! The temple just above is lovely too - lots of elephant carvings and a view down on the village.

We wanted to see thus having read about it online. My family and i stopped off here on the way to Amber fort. Whilst the step well has seen better days I like the slightly distressed and lived in look of the place. The step well has eight flights of steps down to the water level and has a raised... More

If you've watched 'The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' you'll already have seen this amazing site, so if you're in Jaipur please don't miss the chance to go and see it for real! Quietly hidden behind the Amber Fort it's an architectural masterpiece - a real life Escher-like puzzle - which looks wonderful, and different, from every angle. Can only think... More

I stopped by here in March 2014. Older photos show the walls/steps as being a beautiful yellow, which would be very photogenic. At the time of my visit, and as you'll see with photos taken in early 2013, the place was under restoration and most of the walls/steps had a very drab look. It's interesting, but perhaps once the restoration... More

definitely worth to visit if you can spend more time in Jaipur. It's great opportunity to take break from the city noise and rush. Save at least half of the day for visiting it. There is not only stairs wall, which are very pretty. It's worth to wander in the village as you can find many interesting spots and architecture.... More
