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!

Really wonderful to see, Jithin. Such a lot of painstaking work must have gone into creating these. Thanks for sharing your photos. 🙂


Glorious detail, I am a fan of stepwells or 'baoris' too 🙂

Great place. I had great memories of this place and went back again to Adalaj this year. Interestingly, I caught a pigeon sitting in almost exactly the same place as in your top photo: https://anotherglobaleater.wordpress.com/2015/03/20/the-step-well-of-adalaj/

Is there something going on in the pigeon world which we don't know about? Would you be interested in inviting pictures of pigeons sitting at the same spot?


what a fascinating place... the light in the first shot is so dramatic, magical...
