It was during my hitch hiking trip to Ahmedabad, I went to see this marvellous craftsmanship. A stepwell in Adalaj, Ahmedabad.
A stepwell is are well or ponds in which the water may be reached by descending a set of steps. They may be covered and protected and are often of architectural significance.
There are a lot of stepwells in Gujarat, but the one in Adalaj is the famous one.
If you want to know more about the history of Adalaj stepwell, you can read it on Wikipedia.
I am going to show you what my eyes got attracted to. The carvings, the poems written on rocks by master craftsmen!
So let the poetry begins.
Hope you enjoyed these poems. Hats off to the craftsmen. Salude to their determination, dedication, talent and skill.
