“long drive, but great site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

Very unique site and worth the drive, but it is the only thing out there other than a temple that is fallen apart and beautiful countryside.

“Steppin it up!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

This was a great change of pace and a beautiful well. Why is this not in my guide book. This should have been mentioned. This place is worth the 15-20 minute visit. Love it!!

“Interesting sight”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013 via mobile

These step wells are interesting. We were suggested to stop over here on the way to jaipur from bharatpur by hotel staff we stayed . Nice suggestion by the staff . It is a very interesting place with lot of history. Sight is unexplored thus itdoesn't have much ttourist facilities. But overall a nice stop.

“Fascinating place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Well worth the side trip off the Agra-Jaipur road (maybe 30 minute round trip). The site itself is a little bit grotty, but this is well and truly made up for by the fascinating architecture and construction of some 1300 years ago.

The place is not as well maintained as some (comparable) attractions, which is a shame, but prepared with this knowledge I would think that most visitors would have to say "wow".

I suspect that this place is not all that well known, which means that it is not at all crowded.

“Interesting stop on Jaipur-Agra road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

This was quite interesting. Beloved said "whats a stepwell?" and I can see one would not think of going up and down all those steps to get water. The elite bathed in it too; there does not seem to be any objection to bathing in one's drinking water! I don't think it is worth a trip in itsef but it is just of the Jaipur Agra roadd so an interesting stop on the way
