Chand Baori, a step well, located at Abhaneri, a small village 95 km from Jaipur, not an easy landmark to find. The step well was intended to conserve as much water as possible in arid terrain. In short, it is an ancient Rain Water Harvesting (RWH) tank, from the 8th century! A crazy RWH tank, with 30 m deep and... More

Didn't know what to expect when our group stopped here - but it was breathtaking. It's quite difficult to take in at first, the architecture is simply stunning, the history is fascinating, and I felt like I could just stare at this amazing structure for hours. Well worth stopping for a visit.

We stopped here with our tour group. It is an amazing structure that was built to provide constant water supply. There are something like 1000 steps. The pillars are carvings are impressive as they were explained to me by our guide.

This well is somewhat difficult to access but it is more than worth the effort. Very impressive well from the 9th century. It is an engineering marvel. I can just imagine 100s of people carrying jugs of water on their heads, going up 13 stories. This should be an UNESCO site in the near future so beat the crowds. A... More

This ancient step well is no longer functioning and it sounds like it was neglected for a long time. But it is very interesting to see and have the history explained. Pieces of old temples have been found just lying around the area and are now displayed inside this structure. PBS had a good program describing this step well. There... More

We stopped here en-route to Jaipur from Agra and what a wonderful surprise! The outside of this does not prepare you for the majesty inside, this was truly one of the most amazing architectural sites on our visit to India - it looks like some sort of film set from an Indiana Jones movie. If you have the chance stop... More
