Amazing architecture and very well maintained historical mounment.

Difficult to fathom that this was built in 1020 AD and still is structurally sound. Very nice place to visit. Must no be missed.

Very interesting step well. The bottom-most floor is now closed to visitors. The rest of the floors are open. Good way to spend an hour or so.

A step well was a new experience for me and one I thoughrly enjoyed. The carvings are beautiful and well preserved and the clarity of the water at the bottom surprised me. I would not like to have been a lady who had to carry water up all those steps though.

2 km from Ahmedabad on the road of Gandhinagar. Opposite side is Adalaj Trimandir (left side). Right side Adalaj Village. Great Architect and very beautiful. Made by Queen to Cope with less rain seasons. And help pilgrims facility of drinking water in that era. A different concept of making a Well with Great Architecture and noble work

The step-well is architecturally attractive- has lots of steps leading down to the water level. Reasonably maintained.

Located about 18 kms from the city centre, it is a historical marvel provided you have interest in history and architecture. Few attached photographs are the example. Mostly frequented by school/college children and tourists who are off the beaten track. Go there early morning when crowd is less.

It is 10-12 Kms away from Gandhinagar the capital city of Gujarat. A well consists of steps. which we can go nearest place to view the water in turn protected by security grills as not fell down by mistake.
