Explore the intricate construction and ornate carvings at Rani Ki vav, a World Heritage-listed stepwell built in the 11th century to memorialize a king. This ancient Indian system of water storage is built like an inverted temple and descends 27 m (88 ft) into the ground, with every inch meticulously rendered. Some 500 major sculptures and 1,000 minor figures speak to the stepwell's religious and practical function, depicting mythology and secular scenes. Do some background reading before visiting, as there is little information on site. Work out when and for how long to visit Rani Ki vav and other Patan attractions using our handy Patan tour planner.
