Panna Meena ka Kund, Jaipur

4.3
#45 of 549 in Things to do in Jaipur
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.

  • This will only be a short stop on the way to the fort but it is absolutely worth a quick sight. These geometrical stairs descending in this reservoir are beautiful and fascinating. Very original sight...  more »
  • Though not as big as Abhaneri Chand Bawri but worth visiting place in Amber, Jaipur. It was rejuvenated and is very picturesque. You van visit at any time in the day.  more »

  • The best time to visit this place is during Monsoon... The main attraction of the plain is its symmetrical stepwalls...pieces of Octagonal shaped are used in the core of the Kund and terrace on two floors... The stairs are in zigzag geometrical pattern which leave the visitors charmed. Visitors can see the lovely view of the Amber Fort & Palace and mountains from here... The place is the perfect halt for photography...this one of the best place to be explored during the trip to the Pink City...
  • Visited this place recently. Its not very famous but a must visit. The kund is obviously not clean but used to be treasure back in the day. Now its a place for beautiful shots during the evening or morning.
  • not a good place to chill as Jaipur is so hot but definitely a great one to click some pictures. we aren't allowed to go down otherwise you'll have to pay the guard for that about 100 rupees.
  • Beautiful step well. Calm, relaxing place to spend some time. This is a protected monument. Not at all crowded as it’s not that famous and most of the tourists don’t know about it. But a must visit I must say. One can get some nice pictures clicked here.
  • Beautiful place and not too crowded. If you want to walk down and take some pictures, expect to pay the guard around 100 Rupees. That's India as well ;)
