“Adalaj Step - well a historic source of water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

The adalaj step well, as we were told is an old heritage structure which used to supply water in abundance to the people in good olden times . One has to climp down several steps to the actual source, which is protected with grill. The water is aplenty and the well is covered on all four sides. good to see such a perennial source of water, in think no where in our country you will find such an attraction.

“Impressive arquitecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

I went there a couple of time when I lived in India. The arquitecture is quite impressive. However, I think the maintenance from the local authorities could improve as some stinky water odor can sometimes be perceived. But don't worry, odors don't come in the picture, and I'm sure you will have impressive pictures to show about your trip to Ahmedabad.

“A must visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Stepwell is our tradition wherein it was not only a place where u got water ( in those dry areas) but it also served as a rendezvous. Architecturally pleasing and gives pride of of place to "water" which is a vital component of our lives. Adalaj in Ahmedabad is a must see though I believe, there is a better one about 100 kms away. Only complaint is that this place could have been maintained better without those bats and water cleaned up periodically.

“Adalaj Step-well”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

On its own, a good historical place but disappoints those who have visited Ran-ki-Vav (a really wow! wow!)

If you have already visited Rani-ki-Ava, you can give Adalaj Vav a miss.

Visit this place only if you have nothing better to do or wish to go on a long drive with a friends or family
