  • An architectural wonder with a mix of Persian and Indian styles. Had I not googled, I would've never guessed this is a well. However, this place is dusty and isn't maintained well. Lacks lighting on the lower levels, which are bat infested.
  • The architecture and artwork are superb.┬áThis is located in the middle of the residential area and not so much foot fall. Very peaceful area and need to maintain properly.
