Dada Hari Ni Vav, Ahmedabad

4.1
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.

  • We went here on recommendation by our Uber Driver. What an amazing step well and it seems that a lot of Ahmendabadi's don't seem to know about this Gem of a place to visit. Calm and serene place, gene...  more »
  • Beautiful elegant structures without building pit that overabundance of decorations which sometimes weigh down Indian monuments.

  • Amazing to learn of such a fine piece of work done at stepwell .. place itself is nice but seems unattended. It is situated inside .. no much food / snack facility . Seems no focus around the place yet.. however, unless we go more, how focus will come so I recommend visit to this place
  • The architecture is of 1500 AD. The compound houses of stepwell and a mosque. It was very interesting to see the rich heritage of India. The step-well has been constructed so beautifully with intricate carvings throughout. It has about 4 floors, and there are two cute little staircases leading you to each floor Above and below.
  • Simply amazing. How our forefathers were well planned. Not only a great piece of engineering with sand stone, an artistic masterpiece too. Also the mosque attached makes it more exotic and attractive aesthetically. Seems like a bit ignored comparing with other places of interest in Ahmedabad. But if you love history and architecture a visit definitely counts.
  • This was a nice unexpected place. The architecture was awesome. From outside it doesn't seem much of a site to visit. But don't let that thought take over you.
  • Loved it. I thought visiting a stepwell would be quite boring but it turned out to be just the opposite. You're just amazed by how magnificent this place is. Not many people visit this so it's basically tourist free. Located just on the main road and there's not much parking space either. Although there's no sign or board indicating this place so there's a good chance that you'll miss this place if you're visiting for the first time.
