Panna Meena ka Kund, Jaipur

(4.1/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
An eight-storey staircase pool with symmetrical criss-cross steps, Panna Meena ka Kund once served as a popular gathering spot for local elites. Built in the 16th century as a place for socializing around cool and precious water, today the stepwell attracts local couples. Carved niches create a romantic, private setting, also perfect for groups of friends to dip and socialize. You can climb down the steps to reach the bottom, but note that you can't use the same stairs to descend and ascend. The water in the tank is not potable. By using our Jaipur travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Panna Meena ka Kund and other attractions in Jaipur.

  • Close to Amber Fort , this historical 'Step Well' is worth a detour, it is still functioning and a tribute to the building feats of people at that time. 
  • This is a relatively short walk from the fort and is a fine example of one of India's many step wells. You're not supposed to climb down into it, but there don't seem to be many restrictions. You can ...  more »

  • " STEPWELL LIKE ABHANERI(CHAND BAORI ) " !!! one of the finest work of art and architecture ,this step is without any entry fees but the same the management has to keep this step well in perfect condition no capable staff only a person with visitor log book ,please do not pay any money to that person because this attraction is free. Very few tourist visit this place as this is also not mentioned in govt .local sight seen Visited June 2016
  • This hidden gem of Rajasthan is the most beautiful stepwell I have seen in the region. It is also one of the most breathtaking human construction I have ever seen in my life. The mosaic of colors is impressive.
  • A very nice step well. An UNESCO world heritage site that worth to be visited.
  • I went there with great expectations, but it turned out to be a big disappointment, I suppose it might be good for school kids to see what stepwell looked like and for grownups who have no idea what stepwell is. But it's a disappointment for the people with proper camera.
  • On the way to Amer .. Take time at this splendid site.. Rest a while and move on.. U will have to walk from where the cars enter
