I want to Adalaj step well and had high hopes since I had heard a lot about it. But this is a small place which can be covered in 10-15 minutes and you will find a lot of couples and budding photographers here trying to capture the architecture.

what ever i write.... will not be enough .. to believe you will have to visit this place. Go there when you have at least 2 to 3 hours of time. Check the intricate carvings, quality of stone material. This kind of construction will be very difficult even in this modern era. Must visit if you are in Gujarat or... More

Adalaj Stepwell is a stepwell located in the village of Adalaj, close to Ahmedabad town in Gandhinagar district in the Indian state of Gujarat. It was built in 1499 by Mahmud Begada for his queen Rudabai, wife of Veersinh, the Vaghela chieftain.

It is an outsanding piece of engineering. In arid regions such as Gujarat, creating a natural cooling and water collection system is remarkable. Similar architecture exists in other places too.

It may be a little ways outside the city, but it's worth the drive. As soon as you step on the grounds you can tell it's a special place. The architecture is incredibly unique, with carvings into the wall simply too difficult to try and replicate today. As you walk down, it does get a bit more damp, especially on... More

Adalaj step well is a must see when one visits Ahmedabad. It is in Gandhinagar. A beautiful and well maintained place it is really a work of art. A nice monument and not over crowded.
