Mata Bhavani's Well

Mata Bhavani's Well is a step-well located just 200 m north of Dada Hari Wav, in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. Built in 11th century, this long well with the ends projecting east and west is noted for its fine carvings. It has an entrance on the east side. The staircase goes down to the east and at the east end, there is a circular shaft. The well was built in the form of stairs as the water level changes depending on seasons.

The name of the well is derived after the small shrine of Mata Bhavani, an incarnation of Goddess Parvati, at the circular shaft in the west.
