Adalaj Stepwell or Rudabai Stepwell is a stepwell located in the village of Adalaj, close to Ahmedabad city and in Gandhinagar district in the Indian state of Gujarat.

While in Gujarati and Marwari language, the stepwell is called a vav, (leading down to the level of water), in other Hindi-speaking regions of North India it is known as a baoli (also spelt, ‘bawdi’, ‘bawri’ and ‘bavadi’).[1]

Step wells like the one in Adalaj were once integral to the semi-arid regions of Gujarat, as they provided water for drinking, washing and bathing.

This place represents fine example of Indian architecture work.

This place is nice place for capturing images

Also Known as The Adalaj Vav built in 1499, is located 18 kilometers north of Ahmedabad in the Gandhinagar district. The 4 Level well is dug directly into the water table, exposing fresh water that rises and falls according the seasons and the amount of rainfall, the entire complex is full of intricate carvings. Built in sand stone in Indo-Islamic architectural style. If love the historical Architecture, then must watch
