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.
