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).

Nothing to get excited about. Architecture is great but not maintained. Its inside Nahargarh fort. Its a place where queens used to take bath and its deep enough too. filled with dirty water now.

After our climb to the Amber Fort, we descended the other side into Amer town on foot. This masterpiece of engineering is off the beaten track. Utterly beautiful and not one other visitor at the time we went.

Easily missed luckily our driver showed us this super natural well which was in the facinity of the Amber fort . Very quiet without many visitors the well once used by maharani for batheing is a stunning architectural delight .

Don't jump in with the locals unless you have cash to keep out of jail! Lesson learned by my hubby. Lets just say he had to pay for the experience.

A wonderful place. Visitors are not supposed to go down the well, but some others had so I joined them and got shouted at by the guard, but it was worth it. Count the possible ways to descend to the bottom!

Panna Meena ka Kund / Baodi have been built in the 16th century and still well maintained. If you are visiting Amer Fort in Jaipur than dont forget to visit this step well.
