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.

It was made in the 9th Century and it is about 13 stories deep. Our guide has told us that it never gets... More

Has to be seen to be believed. A real engineering feat. If you are in the area defiantly go visit and learn the history. There is not a lot to see apart from the step well but it still worth a visit

On the road between Agra and Jaipur, popular tourist cities, is a remarkable, ancient well that is certainly worth a brief stop. Built in the 9th century, the well has over 7,000 steps, a crisscross pattern of steps. It’s a work of art. It was designed to hold ground water and water from the monsoons, although there is no longer... More

This is one of the oldest stepwells in existence today. It was built during the 8th and 9th centuries and was used to get down to the well at the bottom for fresh water. It is a series of switch back steps to the bottom which is 19.5 meters or about 60 feet deep. It reminds me of an Etcher... More

A very beautiful architect and worth spending few hours at this place. Although now the visitors are not allowed to step inside. This delicately carved well is located in front of the Harshat Mata Temple. It was a ritual to wash the hands and feet at the well before visiting the adjoining temple. The temple's outside walls are in ruins... More

Tucked away in a remote village in Rajasthan, this step well is more than 1000 years old. More than 100 feet deep it was an inegnious way to get to the underground water source in this particularly arid region of India. There is a small temple right by this stepwell which is also worth a visit.

The stepwell is just picture perfect and a must do if you are in Jaipur. You can drive to Bhangarh Fort as well along with Abhaneri if you are on a full day Excursion from Jaipur.

You don't have to spend a whole lot of time here. We got a guide for the 20 minutes of so we were here, and that was enough. The steps and surrounding buildings are amazing. What a place it would have been in it's day! Really cool to see.

Situated in the Abhaneri village, Chand Baori (Step Well) is one of the largest step wells in the world. Chand Baori was built in 800AD to conserve water and provide a respite from the intense heat. It was a community gathering place for locals as well as royals. With 3,500 perfectly symmetrical, narrow steps, the exquisite geometry of the steps... More
