2 km from Ahmedabad on the road of Gandhinagar. Opposite side is Adalaj Trimandir (left side). Right side Adalaj Village. Great Architect and very beautiful. Made by Queen to Cope with less rain seasons. And help pilgrims facility of drinking water in that era. A different concept of making a Well with Great Architecture and noble work

The step-well is architecturally attractive- has lots of steps leading down to the water level. Reasonably maintained.

Located about 18 kms from the city centre, it is a historical marvel provided you have interest in history and architecture. Few attached photographs are the example. Mostly frequented by school/college children and tourists who are off the beaten track. Go there early morning when crowd is less.

It is 10-12 Kms away from Gandhinagar the capital city of Gujarat. A well consists of steps. which we can go nearest place to view the water in turn protected by security grills as not fell down by mistake.

This step-well is smaller, less famous and consequently much quieter than the one in Patan. It still has beautiful carving and the same principle of being like an inverted temple. It's well worth a visit.
