Hidden in a little village off the main tourist places, this stepwell is remarkable with impressive architecture. There were some people at the entrance with one man following us around giving us a history lesson, this wasn't requested, but he provided more information and was friendly enough so we gave him a tip...as we walked out another woman approached with...

Our group stopped in this traditional rural village on the road to Jaipur. The step well is a remarkable piece of geometric architecture consisting of 3500 steps going 100' into the ground. Some reviewers cite poor maintenance; that was not the case in our visit in October 2015. The town has a camel culture with locals offering rides or sitting... More

I'm a Japanese living and travelling a lot in India. Regarding this place, I've seen a lot of photos and heard of lots of sayings. Nice ones. Not a big site outside, surprisingly big inside. Good. Could you allow me to go down to the steps? It was prohibited.

Chand Baori is an ancient hidden step-well where people are not aware of. It's very beautiful in architecture but sadly that seriously lack of good preservation.

Its about 100 Km from Jaipur , a great piece of architecture but completely in shambles and is not kept or managed well by the authorities !! The step-well itself is a marvel with very steep steps leading down ...one needs to be cautious while stepping down ..The over all feel is somehow not very pleasant. If you have nothing... More

If you are in Jaipur and want to have the desire to explore the uncrowded Anceint and historical place - Chand Baori is the answer ! Situated outside the city about 90 kilometers by road at a small rural spot Abhanerii - you marvel at the sculptures strewn around the area envoking a sense of the forgotten era and love... More

This gem of an architecture is located in a tiny town called Abhaneri near Alwar, Rajasthan. A treat to look at, this marvel will leave you wondering how in age when no tech existed a structure so technical was constructed to perfection. A must visit if you plan to travel to Rajasthan do include this in your plan.

The place is situated at a distance of 100 km approx. From jaipur. The route is via Dausa and the place is considered to be one of the best weekend getaways from jaipur. Ideal for a group a friends, a road trip on a weekend can be relaxing. Condition of road is good and the round trip can be completed... More

I had never heard of a step well until our driver suggested we stop by on the way from Agra to Jaipur. I am so glad we did, it was one of the highlights of our trip. "Caretaker" wanted a 200 rupees for a tour, which lasts about 20 minutes. We were two of 4 people there at the time.... More

We were told by our tour guide we were going to visit a step well, but that he would not offer any other explanation because words simply couldn't describe it adequately. As you walk through the dark entrance and enter the other side I completely understood why. You really have to see it for yourself. Even pictures don't help you... More
