This stepped well, constructed for the benefit of the women of the King's family has beautiful architecture at every step. Every step has a firm landing where the women can take bath, change and dress. Several Gods and Goddesses are sculpted. Open almost from sunrise to sunset.

I arrived and saw little pink temple and thought it would be a boring visit but wow...I was wrong. Descending the stairs was incredible. The intricacy of carving was amazing. There are five levels to get to the well. Not many tourists so I was a celebrity posing for photos galore and chatting about cricket! Really beautiful site and worth... More

As is always, the step well is poorly maintained, although notification says" protected monument" Park your vehicle anywhere. Enter from anywhere.... There is hardly any "official govt information" on same. There is a lot of garbage/animal excreta around. Step well is great...very nice & one must spend sometime time, in order to understand the structure.. That said and done, the... More

Descend four flights of stairs to reach the waters and take a look up to find yourself in the midst of the most exquisite architecture that you might have seen. Nice stone carvings with great symmetry and beautiful perspectives, this is a must visit, just a small detour from the SG Road, between Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar.

This is a great place to see the ancient carvings and architectural marvel. But avoid holiday season since it was so crowded in the small areas that one cannot enjoy the place.
