All that is composed will decay...

Chand Baori

Feb 22, 2014

In Jaipur, we got on a bus in following Jaipur-Agra road. We took off after 95th km in the middle of nowhere and found ourselves among child beggars and touts...It took us another half an hour to get to the village of Abhaneri by a tuk-tuk.

We came there to see Chand Baori, a stepwell and one of the oldest landmarks of Rajasthan, magnificent and mind-blowing in size and geometrical perfection.

Built between 800 and 900 AD, this stepwell was dedicated to Goddess of Joy and Happiness.

This stepwell can be spotted in "The Fall" movie, 2006 as well as the blue city of Jodhpur and other fascinating locations.
