Built by a woman of Sultan Begara's harem in 1499AD, these step-wells were made as a retreat during hot summers. Waiting to be filled with rain water, no matter what the weather is, it is always cooler within the Step-wells.
This ancient structure depicts the architecture of the bygone era. At ground level, much might not be visible. But as one rises just a little (with the help of stairs) there is suddenly a deep cascade of steps plunging down several stories, intricate carvings reflecting in the sunlight.

Clean and well maintained.Evenings are especially beautiful in winters with the sunlight just perfectly flirting with the carvings.One can leisurely sit here and admire the well. Do not miss the mosque just adjacent to the stepwell. There is another step well around the corner from this place called Bhavani Mata Vav. Worth seeing that as well.
