Dada Harir Ni Vav is a less known but equally beautiful step well and is often less filled with visitors, it was stunning to visit and due to being less popular it was also possible to walk over the entire step well and get close to the edges. I would not recommend going alone as I did and the neighborhood... More

There are many step well is in ahmedabad. Many of them are unattended and not at all maintained. Even local public make it more worst. Dada hari ni vav is famous step well and design is similar to adalaj step well. But its not in good condition. Its situated in very much population area of old ahmedabad city.

Quiet and peaceful, I thoroughly enjoyed my time there. There is also a temple at the back of the stairwell. If you have limited time and wanted to visit a... More

I'd seen the site featured on TripAdvisor and added it to our list of Tourist sites to visit. The place was quiet with very few visitors. I was amazed at the architecture and the intricate carvings. If we'd had more time I could have spent a few hours here admiring the site further.
