So during the monsoon season, it works to save the rainwater for later. The stepwell is an amazing way to keep the H20 for later. It's an easy stop on the way to Agra from Jaipur. Pee pee stop is 10 INR per person.

Worst kept secret? Everyone talks of it as if the driver/guide is going to grace them with a favour by taking them to visit Chand Baori. Well, no matter what the attitude of the driver/guide, this place is worth visiting to see the elaborate well which was also used in the Batman movie.

Chand baori is an extraordinary piece of architecture, especially if you like step wells. We drove from Jaipur and the roads are very good. The architecture is just marvelous and would make you wonder how they made this place 300-400 years back. The place itself is well maintained by the government. Bad Part: You cant go in the stepwell, but... More

This wasn't in our plans at all. We stumbled on a reference to it, saw the images on line and changed our itinerary. So glad we did. The largest existing ancient step-well, it is kept in excellent shape and is quite an incredible structure. In an area where so much is that is commonplace is deemed wondrous, this is a... More

I wanted to see this - it was very interesting , gives a bit of an optical illusion when you look directly at the steps you cannot see that it descends at an angle as well! Our driver asked if we wanted to visit the school right next door - so we bought a bunch of candies and took them... More

This was a place we stopped on the way from Agra to Ranthambore. I had not did any reading about this place so it was a complete surprise. It is really extraordinary I have never seen any temple like it. It goes down several stories, at least 6 into the ground and the detail on the walls is stunning. If... More
