This stepped well of fifteenth century is worth a visit for the ingenious idea of water storage and the architectural marvel.The unimpressive thing is the pathetic maintenance by the ASI. Other than putting a small board nothing is made for the visitors.Some of the areas inside was stinking with bat/rat droppings and urine.The entrance to the Adalaj is too shabby and one would wonder whether to go near the steps.But what is seen inside would leave lasting impressions.

Just visited the place. Before going there you should read a bit in Wikipedia to appreciate it. The well is in goo shape. As there we no sign board to show the direction , it looked like Gujarat tourism totally ignored it. Had great difficultly it finding the place.

The place is nearby Ahmedabad within 25 kms and can be explored in half day. The monument is well protected and groomed. But there are little opportunities with eatries and chill out places. This aspect should be seriously taken in to account.

Would describe this as an hall mark of ancient architecture and structures and pillars are so beautiful that one wonders how could our ancestors erected such wells and pillars with so much precision and beauty. The ancient had more knowledge about architecture than the present day engineers and architects is very much evident from such structures of marvel.

People who study and are fascinated by ancient architecture must visit this place just 10 kms away on S G Highway. Keep in good condition it give in depth knowledge of how people in past use to fetch water and conserve water. A master piece and people living in todays world must learn how to manage water resources.
