Chand Baoli Step Well @ Abhaneri, Rajasthan, India.


This beautiful architecture was built between AD 800 and AD 900 by King Chanda of the Chauhan Dynasty. This stepwell served as a containment area for water as the state of Rajasthan is known to be extremely dry with little rain.

Interesting fact: At the bottom of the well, the air remains 5 to 6 degrees cooler than the surface!
