Chand Baori

The Chand Baori, a vast well with flights of steps on three sides, is a 10th century monument situated in Abhaneri. It is a fine example of the architectural excellence prevalent in the past. This impressive step well is as deep as a seven storeyed building. The famous Harshat Mata temple situated opposite to this well shows that there must have been a religious connection with the step-well. The well is 35 m on each side with steps leading down from each side and water can be drawn from any level.

Abhaneri is 4 km northwest of Sikandra on the Jaipur-Agra highway. Abhaneri is on the Ahmedabad-Delhi railway line, near Bandikui in Jaipur District. The other nearest railway station Bandikui Junction is 6 km from Abhaneri.
