Chand Baori, Abhaneri

4.7
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Dausa District
See an impressive historical feat of engineering and design at Chand Baori, a stepwell consisting of 3,500 narrow steps descending over 13 stories into the earth. Built sometime between 800 and 900 CE, the well reaches 30 m (98 ft) into the ground, making it one of the largest and deepest structures of its kind in the country. Such wells served for irrigation and water storage purposes, and frequently had additional social and spiritual functions. With the temperature markedly cooler at the bottom of the stepwell than at the level of the ancient city, locals would convene at the foot of the structure when temperatures were particularly intense. With our custom trip planner, Abhaneri attractions like Chand Baori can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
