We did all the big touristy things (Amber Fort, Jaigarh Fort etc) and asked our tuk tuk driver to take us here after seeing it on Tripadvisor. It is pretty close to the main attractions of Jaipur and was a cool 5 minute stop. There is no cost and we were the only people here to see the step well.... More

Although this is nothing compared to Adalaj step well near Ahemdabad... But this 8 storied step well has its own beauty in its austerity.... Gives a very good view of the Amer fort!

Hidden among the lanes leading to Amer Fort is this beautiful thousand year old step well. This is also near the Anokhi museum. Surprisingly this is not popular among the tourists possibly as the guides/ drivers don't encourage/ feign ignorance given the fact there are no shops/ vendors and hence no cut for them. I had to literally force my... More

This most unusual place is often overlooked by tourists visiting the nearby Amber Fort. It is a traditional Indian step well and, although no longer used as such, is well worth a visit. It's free for a start and, unlike many other places of interest, hasn't been ruined by unnecessary health and safety regulations or fences. You can walk up... More

Great place of interesting architecture - very atmospheric thousand year old step-well (baoli) - early mornings are special here. Combine this visit with the adjacent Jagat Shiromani temple, a beautiful early 17th century temple celebrating Krishna and Mirabai - very peaceful and tranquil. Also, walk along the narrow old streets - enjoy the old, derelict buildings and the village sounds... More

Loved this stepped well! Well worth stopping in after leaving Amber Fort. After the grandeur of the fort it was nice to get a feel for life in Amber.

It's a little way away from the Fort, so make a point to de-tour and see it. Very quiet and a great photo stop. The village is picturesque too.
