Adalaj Stepwell

Explore this extraordinary underground world of wonder known as the Adalaj Stepwell, or "Vav" as locals call it, and take in the picturesque sight. Built in 1498 by Rana Veer Singh of the Vaghela dynasty of Dandai Desh, this well is quintessential example of Indian architecture at its best. Made of sandstone in the Solanki architectural style, the Adalaj Stepwell reaches five stories underground and boasts beautiful and intricate carvings. In addition to its physical appeal, this popular attraction also lures many visitors with its myths. Legend has it that the beautiful queen, Rani Roopba, tricked her husband's murderer to finish building the well with the promise of marriage, only to kill herself in the very well he had built in order to be with her husband in the afterlife.
