Called Adlaj-ni-vaav in local language, this is a well which was also a place to stay for travellers, rejuvenate and then move ahead.
This place has a lawn, it is lovely to spend some time with evening breeze while sitting there. I could have rated this place excellent but it is encroached by some filthy structure, I don't know why those have not been shifted out of the place.

Worth to visit this place. The step well is famous for stone carving and its history. The well is made for common public to have access to water. Purposely made by steps so that people can enter into the well and fetch the water. Making it more inside the earth make the water cooler. It is our of imagination for a well as this more than a well and just like a small palace. Photographers will like this place and you can have your own pic though the designed window by standing at the window.
Above and near to well you will find nice garden. You will require about 45 mins for this visit.

Slightly out of the city, but worth the ride which is interesting. Set in a simple village setting and an absolutely amazing site. Lots of steps, but even impressive from the top.

Very poorly maintained piece of History and that too in Gujarat which promotes tourism with the likes of Amitabh Bachan
