Adalaj Step-well, Ahmedabad
(4.3/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
At Adalaj Step-well, explore the water building which served as a resting place for many pilgrims and traders for hundreds of years. Built in 1499, its carved ornamentation depicts mythological scenes that represent the Indo-Islamic architecture. Enter the mystical site via one of three stairs which meet at a huge square platform underground, while an opening in the ceilings invite sunlight. See the spots where villagers came to fill their pots with sacred water from the octagonal well, offered prayers to gods, and socialized. The site has well-connected routes, so you can reach it by via train, car, or bus. Use our Ahmedabad vacation planner to add Adalaj Step-well and other attractions to your Ahmedabad vacation plans.
