“Very nice experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2012

The Adalaj step well is not far from where we live. I had a chance to visit and was very impressed. Fantastic architecture, plenty of photo opportunities. Surroundings may not be as clean and well-kept as one would like but a great experience overall. Must visit.

“Depths of Faith”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

I went to the Step Well with a broken foot. And I enjoyed it immensely. It had to be great for me to say that because my cast was killing me. All I recall is the Escher-like maze of columns going off into the distance, above and below me. Carvings are all around and the ancient stone echoes to footsteps and the shouts of children. It's mysterious and spiritual and very deep, in every sense. I think it's a must-see for anyone in Ahmedabad.
