Dada Hari Ni Vav, Ahmedabad

4.1
#10 of 23 in Historic Sites in Ahmedabad
An ornately designed octagonal step well, Dada Hari Ni Vav is one of the most complex structures in the city. You'll be able to go down five levels of stairs, through a small forest of stone columns to reach the eerie and cool underground level with two wells. Notice the elaborate carvings in the typical Gujarati style and two inscriptions on the first gallery--in Arabic on the north, and in Sanskrit on the south wall.

    The carvings are real beautiful. Wish government had maintained it. The steps of well are uncoutable. It is just beauty and marvel of art. It has even a mosque inside  more »

    Finest art work, I must say. Such a beautiful place to visit with fine architecture, every squares of the wall has been curved out of delight art work. Only possible negative remark that I can come up with is, the place is not well maintained.

    An amazing, hidden place in the very heart of the city. Not so easy to spot from outside and not well maintained but is very beautifully constructed.

    Unbelievable architecture, a massive stone carved building constructed underground hundreds of years ago. They don't makes these anymore. Temperature starts dropping one story down. Sadly neglected, but still jaw dropping if you can get yourself there.
