There are step wells all across Rajasthan but Chand Baori is thought to be the largest and deepest in the whole of India. Its about 1200 years old and has served to store water from the monsoon season: during the dry season, the ladies had to go down more flights of stairs to reach the water.
If you’ve seen Tarsem’s The Fall, you’ll recognise it as the spot where Darwin and Wallace reach the end of the road; its unmistakably this one.
The ruins of Harshat Mata Hindu Temple are beside the step well, destroyed by Mahmud Ghazni. The carving were very fine and a lot of the surviving fragments can be seen in the covered walkway that surrounds the step well.
