Rani Ki Vav is the oldest and the grandest stepwell in the state of Gujarat. It is situated at Patan and is believed to have been built during 1022 to 1063 AD. The construction was completed by the widowed queen Udayamati. She was the wife of King Bhimdev I, son of Mularaja, the founder of the Solanki dynasty of Anahilwada Pattan. It is a richly sculptured monument and a major tourist spot in Patan. The size of the Rani Ki Vav is so huge that the tourists appear to be ants climbing an anthill.

We arranged a car and driver for the day($65) to see this historic site and its older counterpart 36km south. A nicely landscaped parkland displays the large sunken stepwell built around 1064 by the Queen of King Bhima I of the Solanki Dynasty. The descending 7 levels are lined with walls and columns of 800 elaborately carved stone. Located in... More

We visited this place in December 2015. This is 11th Century monument, build by Gujarat's Solanki Dynasty. It's one of the cleanest heritage site. Beautiful Carvings depicts rich culture & tradition of that era. Hindu Epics are carved in stone, that's biggest elements. This actually is a step well. Preserved well. Ample Parking available. Approach to the location is easy.... More

I don't want to repeat the history of this well again and bore you. But I can say don't miss it if you visit Gujarat. If you are travelling from Ahmedabad, there's a bypass for this place without entering the city, Patan. There are no guides available here. I believe there's a book available in the ticket counter.

This place is cleanest historical sites in India. The architecture and intricateness is something which I believe our artists had an expertise on. There is a big park with lot of shade under trees. The vav is 80 feet in depth. There are old age steps to climb down. A major portion is restricted to tourists. A good place to... More
