This is not to be missed. There's a small temple nearby and a village but you cannot believe this place exists once you see it you'll lose all sense of perspective. Beautiful.

My first reaction was - why is this not a World Heritage site. We were visiting sites in the Golden Triangle in India and were travelling from Jaipur to Agra. Our driver offered us a surprise side trip from the main road which we happily accepted. The entrance to this amazing stepwell is really quite non-descript basically from the ruins... More

This magnificent stepwell is approximately 2 hours by car from from Jaipur, and we were so pleased we decided to make the visit. Located in a tiny village called Abhaneri, the stepwell is a sight to behold. Over 3,500 narrow steps dropping to a depth of 100 feet - a magnificent construction. Beware of the 'guides' who will approach you... More

We were brought to see the ancient stepwell as part of a tour group. It was pretty spectacular. The design is really clever. I especially loved all the stone Hindu carvings that were on display. There were masses of them, all intricate and in great condition. This was an impressive building to visit

Our guide took us here as a surprise side trip between Jaipur and Agra, and I'm so grateful he did! Chand Baori (stepwell) is over 1,000 years old and looks like something out of an Escher drawing! Entry is free and it is definitely worth the trip - not many people visit, so it's not crowded and you can take... More

We were on an organised trip and told we were going to visit a stepwell - it wasn't mentioned in my guidebook and we weren't really told much about it so I had no expectations.....WOWZERS - it is amazing! It is so detailed and beautifully built and huge! I think the last time I was so blown away was when... More

The pictures speak for themselves. Must have a quick look. It is for free. Not many tourists at that time. Beware of beggars.

A must stop when traveling from Jaipur to Agra. This is more like an art piece situated in a small village. Don't make a mistake and miss this place. The only thing is I wish you were able to walk down the steps but since they are steep with no handrails, I get it.

This well is the deepest step well in the world. It is located in a small village in India. It is near a temple and it is believed that their is some religious connection between the two. It was made in the 9th Century and it is about 13 stories deep. Our guide has told us that it never gets... More
