Adalaj Stepwell

The Adalaj stepwell is a unique Hindu water building located in the village of Adalaj. The stepwell was built in 1499 by Muslim king Mohammed Begda for Queen Rani Roopba. The stepwell is intricately carved and is five stories deep. Such stepwells were once integral to the semi arid regions of Gujarat as they provided basic water needs for drinking, washing and bathing. These wells were also venues for colorful festivals and sacred rituals. The walls are carved with depictions of women performing daily chores, as well as scenes of dancers and musicians. Also depicted are the Ami Khumbor (symbolic pot of the water of life), the Kalp Vriksha (tree of life) and the navagraha (nine planets).
