Chand Baori in Abhaneri village in eastern Rajasthan, India. It is truly one of the best but unrecognized landmarks in the country. It happens to be one of the oldest step well in Rajasthan, which is thought to be among the largest on the planet. Chand Baori seems like something but a well. This amazing square structure is 13 stories deep and lined along the walls on three sides are double flight of steps. 3, 500 narrow steps organized in excellent symmetry descent to the bottom of the well 20 meters deep in a murky green puddle of water. Constructed through the 8th and 9th century by King Chanda of Nikumbha Dynasty , offered the surrounding places with a dependable water supply for hundreds of years before modern day water delivery methods were developed . As the green water at the base attests, the well has stopped being in use, however it creates a remarkable stop-over to an architecturally impressive design which is over 1000 years old. There’s also a temple adjoining the well for visitors to look into.
