Stepped Tank, Hampi

(4.4/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
Appreciate the geometric perfection of Stepped Tank--a part of the Hampi World Heritage Site that has never required even the slightest restoration. This giant, drain-free tank fed by an aqueduct boasts elaborate decorations across five tiers, the lowest of which is 7 m (23 ft) deep. Historians believe skilled carvers cut each block of green diorite at another site, before moving and assembling them within the fortified section of the Hampi complex. Adjacent to this unique water structure you can see another tank, which served as a bathing area for the queen and her royal attendants.
