Trip Planner: Asia / India / Gujarat / Ahmedabad District / Ahmedabad / Bai Harir ni Vav ( Stepwell )
An ornately designed octagonal step well, Bai Harir ni Vav ( Stepwell ) is one of the most complex structures in the city. You'll be able to go down five levels of stairs, through a small forest of stone columns to reach the eerie and cool underground level with two wells. Notice the elaborate carvings in the typical Gujarati style and two inscriptions on the first gallery--in Arabic on the north, and in Sanskrit on the south wall. Make Bai Harir ni Vav ( Stepwell ) a centerpiece of your Ahmedabad vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Ahmedabad trip itinerary app.
Bai Harir ni Vav ( Stepwell ) reviews
Not as popular as the other one in the city but it is not touristy. It is 15th century 25m deep no water when we visited and one can also access the old spiral staircase. Behind the wells is also..... more »
We visited the step well and was told the very sad story of its building and death surrounding its history. Not a place to visit if your not too stable as its 88 steps down to the well... more »
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. This is located in the middle of the residential area and not so much foot fall. Very peaceful area and need to maintain properly.
