A stunning step well

This is a good place to stop if you're travelling to Jaipur. The step well is stunning due to it's scale.

On the road to Agra from Jaipur, we stopped to see Chand Baori. I had never seen a stepwell before, and our guide explained this structure and told us a bit of the history. It certainly was very old and had a very interesting story that made us all stand looking and just wondering what it was like that many... More

Our tour guide took my girlfriend and I here on our way from Agra to Jaipur. What a fun surprise. This place was super cool to see. Even better when combined with the history and info our guide was telling us. We recommend stopping here if it's on or close to your route. It's worth checking out.

We loved the rural setting for this little architectural wonder. The drive through the countryside was a treat after the hustle and hassle of the cities. Step wells are an architectural wonder and Chand Baori fires up the imagination to consider the hardships of everyday living of the past. I was surprised that there is no admission, although the local... More

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 step down into the stepwell. Good stopover if you are around that area.

Allow yourself to stop by at these stepwells on your way from Jaipur to Agra (or the other way around of course!). We had a special memory related to this beautiful monument, as we visited it during the Holi festival and we played with some guys at the entrance. The employers are very friendly people and, as it frequently happens... More

This is an incredible sight and cannot imagine having to carry water up all these steps. It was constructed in the 9th century and still looks magnificent. Panoramic picture looks amazing.

I can just imagine people carrying water out of this step well hundreds of years ago! The village is a treat to visit too.

We happened upon this amazing structure on our journey between Jaipur & Agra. We visited a small step well earlier in our travels but it pales in comparison to this one. Chand Baori was constructed in the 9th century by King Chanda. It is very well preserved: over 1,000 steps and 13 different levels, cut in precision geometric patterns. Definitely... More

No need for a guide. You can walk around take pictures yourself at the largest Step Well. Also works as a good bathroom stop. Ladies, bring your own TP. It's a squat toilet port a potty and 10 IR to use it.
