Dr Suess style in Jaipur

A mad mix of Escher and Suess away from the rush of the palace. Well worth the extra time at the end of our tour

It's worthy to go only bcs you are planning to go to Agra Fort or it's totally not worth it to go there on purpose. However, the geometry of the steps still cool though.

I agree that this is an awesome hidden gem. The only other people there were three boys swimming in the water. Great colouring of steps for photography. It is also good because it doesn't have barriers like other step wells therefore you can walk right down to the water. Visit this step well before more tour guides become aware of... More

Came here with some friends and we were the only people visiting. Have seen step wells in pictures and on the TV so it was great to experience one up close and personal for the first time. Enjoyed navigating the stairs down to the water's edge and frightening to think children jump off from the edge to the water below.... More

I love stepwells and was thrilled to encounter this one as I made my way down from Amber Fort. It's peaceful and well-preserved. There was no one there when we went, which made it all the better.

A hidden gem, but please add this lovely step well (and Anokhi Museum) to your Amber Fort visit. I was totally alone when I visited... and it seemed serene and magical... like stepping back in time.

Very interesting looking well. No one was there so I had the place to myself which is always nice. Multiple stair cases wrap around leading down to the water. Looked a bit like an MC Escher painting but without the break in reality.

I LOVE Step Wells and so, this place was on my must-visit list in Jaipur. This step well, as others, is quite interesting and I always love to look at their fascinating layout. There were no other tourists there as this is not something everyone visits. There's nothing much to look at except for the well from the top. One... More
