Step well

This step well located near Amber Fort Jaipur, India is the best preserved step well. It served as water reservoir when was a scarcity of water.

I have visited quite a few step wells , Rani ki bav, adalaj and Chand baori step well to name a few. This step well is quite different from the ones I visited. It's a short walk from the Amer fort and u would suggest you either walk or take a two wheeler to the step well cause it's hidden... More

Certainly not the main attraction of Jaipur but I was delighted that I did not give it a miss. It is deep water source with multiple stairs access to the water below. Once again you need to be firm on your feet to go down.

The cubist sculpture of this in the strong sunlight is quite remarkable. You can't see it from the road, so as you climb the short flight up to it and suddenly look down into it you get a sense of an inverted cube that is almost like an Escher painting. It is forbidden to go down into it for obvious... More

This was an unplanned stop after yet another traffic jam but one that was worth it. Not much to say other than it was a secluded and peaceful place that was an interesting insight to a culture and architecture that is far removed from the safe and simple kitchen tap of home.

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 easily combine this with a visit to the nearby Anokhi Museum.

This was an unexpected visit for us. We decided to forego the jeep ride up to the Amber Fort and dont agree with the use of Elephants for transporting tourists up to the fort, so we took our private car up and our guide took us to this sight. If you take the jeep or Elephant you are highly likely... More

This is a beautiful Step Well, perfectly combined with a visit to the Amer Fort. Loved the yellow and red tones, only wish that I could have had a beautiful Indian woman in a colorful sari pose for me on those steps!

An old water well at the base of the Amber Fort in the town of Amer and across the road from a lovely Hindu temple (Jagat Shiromani). Being the middle of winter, the water level in it was very low (and alarmingly green looking), but this allowed a detailed look at its intricate design and engineering, many angled fights of...
