Hard to believe the age, the purpose and the condition!

This is perhaps the finest archaeological that we have seen. Rank it right-up with Stonehenge. It is a stepwell that was built by King Ghanda [8th-9th century A.D.] The condition... read more

This is perhaps the finest archaeological that we have seen. Rank it right-up with Stonehenge. It is a stepwell that was built by King Ghanda [8th-9th century A.D.] The condition is terrific and you can understand it use and importance. I'm sure many guides do not stop here, only because of scheduling. Encourage them to stop, you will not regret... More

This was an unplanned stop for the Explore India group. Has to be seen difficlut to describe. Used as a bathing and cooling site 30 metres in ground, 3500 narrow steps.

This is an amazing building completed many years ago. Such a marvellous structure built to collect rain water for the people of the area. It is like an upside down Pyramid. Well worth the visit as it is huge.

During a quick week seeing the sights and sounds of Rajasthan over Diwali we took a day trip from Jaipur to see the step well at Abhaneri. The journey took just under 2 hours each way and until the last part of the trip there was little to see except motorway and just to the east of Dausa a bright... More

This is an architectural marvel many tourists aren't aware of but totally worth the visit. Since it is less crowded, the surrounding is quite peaceful. We took a local bus from jaipur to sikandra. And from sikandra you can hire a jeep to abhaneri for 300-400 rs. Abhaneri is around 20 kms from sikandra. The guy will wait for around... More

Well worth finding this attraction and the ancient temple next door. A little off the tourist track but it was built a thousand years ago and is in excellent condition. The design is genius and baffling. There are other carvings stored here too. The visitors do attract the usual beggars and hawkers, unfortunately the local people don't have very much... More

This stepwell is an incredible architectural marvel, as well as being still functional. There are ruins of intricate carvings in alcoves set back from the well on the top level. It's a secluded place, not over-run with tourists. Definitely worth a visit, especially as it's an easy stop-off between Fatehpur Sikri and Jaipur (Jaipur is less than a 2 hour... More

About a 2.5yrs drive from Jaipur, lies this small village Abhaneri which has this wonder.. Built by a long king just about 2-3 centuries ago.. the whole step-well is built with locally available stone blocks with natural joints (not mortar) and the design is such that you will set male/female locks. The local mgmt have built steel fence to prevent... More
