This ancient Indian system of water storage is built like an inverted temple and descends 27 m (88 ft) into the ground, with every inch meticulously rendered. Some 500 major sculptures and 1,000 minor figures speak to the stepwell's religious and practical function, depicting mythology and secular scenes.

This is considered to be the finest example of a step well built over a thousand years ago. A unique place, on 10 floors in the basement. Fantastic sculptures and very well preserved because they have long been buried. Each Statue is so detail and different. Its just outstanding work done century back. Greenery and cleanliness of the entire vast campus is quite appealing. Perhaps this can be considered as one of the cleanest heritage site of India.
