If you are in Sariska , you may combine a half days trip to this amazing Chand Baori (step well) made in the 9th century. It’s an architectural and engineering marvel . It is 13 stories deep with 3500 steps down. It was a very useful way to conserve water in that arid region especially for travellers in that area.
Apart from the step well, there are exquisitely carved statues lined up in the courtyard of the well. They were lying disfigured and damaged in the Harsha Mata temple nearby and now it is like a gallery of rare statues in the precincts of the step well.
Since this deepest step well of India is unique, it’s worth a visit even from Jaipur. It’s well preserved and under Archaeological Survey of India.
A lot of Bollywood and few Hollywood movies have been shot and the enthusiastic guides show you around the location .

Visited the place on the return journey from Ranthambore, taking a detour from Dausa to Abhaneri.

Prominently located next to a tarmac road, the structure is co located with Harshat Mata Temple.

Now a heritage site, there is ample parking next to the monument with a minimally priced entry ticket of Rs 25/- per Indian adult.

The history of Chand Baori talks about its strategic location between 2 rivers, ensuring that the ground water never dries up. Steps are on 3 sides with changing rooms and enclosures for the princely patrons on one side.

The whole Baori is iron fenced to prevent accidents but the thought, design and stone carvings create a beautiful ambience.

Guides are available for a small talk about the place, else read the Wikipedia on the same.

We specifically worked a stop at Chand Baori into our schedule. We stopped on our way from Agra to Jaipur. It was well worth the detour. We saw other stepwells in India but non compared to this. It is really an architectural and artistic wonder. The photos can't convey the immensity of it.

The place is well preserved and the architecture is a treat to watch. Try taking a local guide who could explain the story behind the structure.

Heart of desert, having a well which allows people to reach water. Architecture so advanced that even the provision for animals to reach the fully system to lift the water was placed. Part was under cover to help women have privacy was something remarkable. Definitely people 1000 years ago were more thoughtful and had advanced scientific knowledge

It is an absolute pity that more travellers, especially domestic do not take the trouble to visit this absolute gem - the tour guide there told me most people who come here are foreigners - tragic !!

Take the trouble, go see the absolute beautiful masterpieces left by renowned Hindu Chauhan kings in the 8th and 9th centuries - you will not regret the ~ 2 hour drive from Jaipur or the very typical inconvenience of visiting an Indian tourist site not connected with Mughals in that no glamour, deplorable maintenance, surly staff etc - even for all that, it is a must must visit !!

This is a great spot to see a step Well. Take a guide if possible, just 1 guy was there. Gave a good history. With pics and all, took less than 30 mins.

Not worth if you are travelling just to see this, Bengaluru f travelling to Agra from Jaipur, worth an hours diversion.

Chand Baori, a step well, constructed in Abhaneri Rajasthan is a must visit place for tourists to get amazed at the perfection with which these structures were created. More than 1100 years old, this structure shows no signs of decay or deterioration. A national protected monument, now a Rs 25 ticket per person is required to visit it but once entered, you want to stay there, get yourself photographed and marvel at the precision with which it has been created.

Beautiful architecture, awarded AAA by ASI and very well maintained.

The design and alignment gives it a 3D appearance and gives an impression of its depth. During rains the water comes upto 3 more levels.

Apart from the stepwell there are very beautifully crafted stone images og Gods and goddesses which have been damaged by ancient rulers.

How pretty is this place? We were awestruck by the architecture and the massiveness of this baori. Though this is quite a distance from Jaipur or the main city, but I thought it was worth the visit. Right next to it is a Mata temple, which is another beautiful ruin.

You can easily spend about an hour and a half at this place, lots of photo opportunities, and will transport you to the old world charm.

It is a piece of history which should be maintained a bit more, but awesome! Definite visit.
