CHAND BAORI: MOST OVERLOOKED LANDMARK IN EASTERN RAJASTHAN
Chand Baori, situated in the Abhaneri village in the east of Rajasthan, is one of the most ignored and overlooked landmarks in the history of India and the world. Being one of the oldest stepwells in Rajasthan, it is considered to be among the largest stepwells in the world which looks like a big sized well. This historically built incredible square structure is 13 stories deeper with stairs lined along the walls. 3500 narrow steps have been arranged into a perfect symmetry descending to the bottom of the well that runs to 20 meters deeper into murky green puddles of water.
The Chand Baori is believed to be built during the 8th and 9th century by King Chanda of Nikumbha Dynasty. It was used to provide the surrounding areas with a regular and dependable source of water before the modern water delivery system came to existence. As the green water comes to the base, the well serves no use but it becomes an interesting stop over as an impressive landmark in Rajasthan that now accounts more than thousand years old. For the visitors, there is also a temple adjoining the well.
