The stepwell is just picture perfect and a must do if you are in Jaipur. You can drive to Bhangarh Fort as well along with Abhaneri if you are on a full day Excursion from Jaipur.

Chand Baori is a stepwell located in Abhaneri village in Rajasthan. The architecture is magnificent and picturesque and the beautiful carvings are fascinating. The only drawback is that it has been fenced by the authorities some years back, hence it is no longer possible to...More
