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

Its a place less known but worth to visit. Beautiful Step Well in a very quiet place. I enjoyed wandering up and down the steps with my baby who is also enjoying it a lot. You could skip Stepwell near Nahargarh Fort but not miss this.

This is a very old but still intact step well, and nothing hinders you from wandering up and down the steps. It is beautiful to look at, and the area is so, so quiet. There are some benches--bring a book and a water bottle and enjoy the scenery for awhile. It's also free. In Amer, start by following the signs... More

The isolated structure is near back entrance of Amber Fort . Just 5 min walk from Anokhi museum . Quiet and serene place . It's a heritage site but unfortunately no one visits the place . Must visit esp if you are travelling with family . Must see for children . Unique structure , still in good condition . Its... More
