Its good for mini picnic but there is not much you can do there. But don't miss to visit mitti ke flower pots waali shop, which is on the way to Adalaj step well

This place I visited with bunch of friends without much expectation. We found only a temple from entry gate and paved porch of it. We entered in, a floor downstairs there was awesome architecture of step well. We took lots of couple & group photos. We went downstairs at step well; the design of building was really precious. We enjoyed calmness and cool environment in hot summer.
The place is 30 minutes away from the Ahmadabad town by car. The government transport facility is not easily accessible. The garden and place were maintained okay. The food facility nearby was not good enough. The refreshment was available at SG (Sarkej Gandhinagar Highway). This monumental at least once visited.

The architecture of the Adalaj Step-well is breath-taking. Make sure you take the steps to the bottom-most pit wherein lies the well. Maintenance though isn't up to the mark and the well isn't kept very clean.


Go in the afternoon to avoid burning your feet in the incredibly hot stone steps. ( Shoes not allowed in the compound)

As we arrived to Adalaj, we looked at our driver and said, "Here?". You would never know from its surroundings of modest to low end homes and standard business that surround the park that just meters away you will find an unbelievable piece of history. We stepped onto the grounds, and then began to see a beautiful open field of grass and trees, and the top working of the well complex. We tipped an unofficial 'guide' that gave us some of the history and pointed out the different periods of work. It was really amazing. It doesn't take as much as an hour, so it is well worth it if you have the time.
