Dada Harir Ni Vav, Ahmedabad

Postby Debarpita » Tue Mar 17, 2015 5:14 pm

'Vav' in gujrati means 'StepWell'. In search of some historic location in the city of Ahmedabad, I decided to start with this Baoli (StepWell) and it took me quite sometime on a Sunday afternoon to reach at this beautiful serene location. And not to mention, this 15th century structure was just stunning.

History says, this was built by King Sultan Bai Harir (locally known as Dada Harir) in 1485 AD. This stepwell is 5 level deep and is made of sand stone with beautiful carvings all around.
