If you're visiting for more than a few days or have a particular interest in water technologies, I would strongly recommend you visit.

Nobody has bothered to maintain this place. There were no tourists at all. Even though there was a step well visible, we didnt venture near it as it was isolated, with just a few locals playing cricket in around it. Visit Adalaj step well instead, which is well maintained and frequented by tourists.

This is a well, the water source for the region in olden times. It was under restoration when we visited. Nice place needs a lot of cleaning. Locals use this place to sit and booze as it was not taken care, i guess the restoration would have been done and now the place would be good i guess. Its very... More

One of the numerous step-wells, dotting the city, Dada Harir Ni Vaav aka Rani Ni Vaav, is the deepest one. Some 9 floors underground, it is full of beautifully carved walls and columns. It also has a mosque in the complex which is also decorated with typical Amedavadi carving. Simple beautiful.

This one is less known with the tourists, hence not very crowded. It's a beautiful stepwell, where one can take some time and see the precision with the architecture and the carvings. Not to be missed I'd recommend!
