Adalaj is supposed to be beautiful and I can understand that theoretically. Unfortunately, after Rani ki Vav, it was difficult to see Adalaj as much more than a hole in the ground. The well goes down about five storeys and is quite impressive nonetheless. Some...More

You should not miss seeing this place if you are going to Akshardham Temple. This gives us an idea about how thoughtful and intelligent our ancestors were. It's a big complex which is entirely below the ground level. There are many such wells across India,...More
