4.2
#11 of 47 in Sightseeing in Jaipur
Landmark Tourist Spot
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.

  • This kund is situated near the back gate of Amer Fort. You'll have to take a right from the Jagat Shiromani Temple. No one knew when I asked directions for the place . When showed the pic, they then g...  more »
  • Somewhat of tourism we find this watering hole, walled, lots of stairs from all four sides lead to the water. Here you can find some rest on the covered benches and even shadows. The space invites you to meditate.

  • Photographers Delight - Away from maddening crowds. Yes it is a fair amount of walk from Amer fort, and in absence of proper signage you would ask a few times. But the reward is finding a beautiful place with very few tourists. So you can go ahead and click as many photos as you want from all angles - or you may choose to sit silently in one of the many seating areas around the step well.
  • The fact about this place which is believed by locals is that nobody can use the same stairs to get down and go upstairs here which indicates that the same stairs can’t be utilized by the same person. This is an amazing mystery and all the visitors to this place try to do this. But the local people of this place can do this task without any problem as they are habitual to it. The place has stunning pattern of symmetrical stairs which can keep yous stunned.
  • Panna Meena Ka Kund is also called Panna Mian Kund, Panna Meena Baori, Panna Meena Bawri Panna Meena Kund is the only well restored and functional step-well in Jaipur. It belongs to an era before the invention of piped water. These days, it’s not used for the purpose, it was originally built. It has served its purpose for many centuries. The Baori or Bawri was part of the community and society residing around it. It served as a prime source of drinking water especially when the deficient rainfall period. Although, it’s not on a regular tourist itinerary, but some guides and tour operators do take tourists around this stepwell for a tour.
  • A gem of a place hidden in plain sight. Classic example of Rajasthani architecture. This place has been the victim of neglect and can be a great tourist attraction.
  • Ancient Step well, older than the jaipur city. Built at the time when kacchawas ruled from amber

Where to stay in Jaipur

With a big selection of budget and mid-range hotels, Jaipur serves as an ideal base for exploring the surrounding area. Many taxi and rickshaw drivers aggressively push their choice of hotels on unwitting tourists--if you refuse their suggestions, they might double the fare. To avoid this inconvenience, book your room ahead and call the hotel to arrange for a pickup--many offer shuttle services to and from the train and bus station.
