Really interesting, stop at the school nearby as well!

I wanted to see this - it was very interesting , gives a bit of an optical illusion when you look directly at the steps you cannot see that it descends at an angle as well! Our... read more

We took a short detour whilst travelling from Agra to Delhi. The step well is pretty impressive, a fabulous bit of engineering, well worth visiting

This was a place we stopped on the way from Agra to Ranthambore. I had not did any reading about this place so it was a complete surprise. It is really extraordinary I have never seen any temple like it. It goes down several stories, at least 6 into the ground and the detail on the walls is stunning. If... More

Driving between Jaipur and Agra, we had an arranged stop at the Chand Baori, as I had read about it in a travel magazine and requested our Travel Guide have this included in the itinerary. Glad we did as it adds to the mystic and history of this wonderful country. There are step wells through out India but from what... More

We went on a 2 day trip to Dausa, near Jaipur. Known be the name of Chand Baori the Abhaneri stepwell is a must visit place with 3,500 narrow steps arranged in perfect symmetry descending to the well at its bottom. If you are driving from Delhi to Jaipur, dont forget to visit this place specifically during the Abhaneri Festival.

An amazing construction, an ingenious piece of architecture without too many crowds. Interesting collection of ruined temple pieces - the temple, with resident priest is adjacent.

From the picture and description at the entrance you don't appreciate how magnificent this place really is. On entering, which is free of charge, your breath is taken away with construction of this 8-9th century step well. You don't have to be interested in architecture to appreciate this wonderful place.
