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.

  • I went with my friends for 2 times . It was a good one and must visit place The architecture was simply superb 
  • I would have given five stars to this place but for the missing cleanliness in and around the area. In the first instance you can't feel that you are at historical monument which is famous for it's architect and fame. It needs to be taken care of by the archeological department of India. There is not even a notice board display to restrain visitors from littering here and there. The staff deployed there was just a token arrangement that too without any authority. I also request to visitors to at least respect the sanctity of the place.
  • Bahot hi khubsurat karigari ki gai hai, good place for visit,
  • Fantastic stone carving, unique structure.well maintained , easy to visit as it is on outskirts of Ahmedabad. Better to visit on weekdays as on weekend it is very crowded. It is photographer's delight.
  • This is a architectural masterpiece. It has 5 floors and one can walk down to the bottom of the well. The carving on the wall are intricate and detailed. Its a must visit!
  • This step well is very unique and beautiful. Though slightly smaller than Patan Vav, but the carvings and the pattern is very similar. Even if you do not visit Patan after seeing this, you wouldn't miss much.
