DEEP DOWN THE WELL

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Chand Baori - The Deepest  Stepwell in the World.

Chand Baori is a famous  stepwell situated in the village  Abhaneri near Jaipur in Indian state of  Rajasthan.

The Chand Baori, a vast well with flights of steps on three sides, is a  10th century monument situated in  Abhaneri.
It is a fine example of the architectural excellence prevalent in the past. This impressive step well is as deep as a seven  storeyed building.

The famous  Harshat Mata temple situated opposite to this well shows that there must have been a religious connection with the step-well. The well is 35 meter on each side with steps leading down from each side and water can be drawn from any level. It has so many steps to make it impossible for someone to retrieve a coin once it  has been dropped in the well.
