Beautifully engineered and constructed masterpiece of ancient indian architecture. Must visit place in Ahmedabad. Located 18 km from the main city, challenging for photographers, should carry lighting.

If you are an Engineer like me then you will fall in love with this architectural beauty. If you are a hardcore photographer like me then you will fall in love with this. I went from Kolkata travelling 2000 km and it rewarded me.

This place was very near to Ahmedabad. Good place for visit for history lover. This step well was built in 1499 by Queen Rudabai. We have enjoyed its visit.

Must carry a DSLR. It’s so beautiful. Though the water in the step well stinks. Someone with knee joints pains or problems will find it difficult to climb down and come back.

I dont think so, you can go there and take pics. However, it is crowded so best you go there in weekdays and in the noon.
