It is a typical Hindu step well of those times. It was built during the rule of Sultan Mahmud and incurred a havoc cost. It was basically built by Bai Harir Sultani, who was locally called by the name of Dada Hari. It was built in the Asarwa Village close to Ahmedabad.
It is 5- storey structure. The depth is for the purpose of extraction of water from deep underground during scarcity times for everyday use. These were very popular during those times due to the lack of modern water holding facility. This has an open roof as soon as you reach the top level and all the levels look just beautiful even though they are now nothing compared to their former glory and grandeur.
The pillars and the walls are adorned with fantastic carvings of the traditional Islamic style of designing with a blend of some Hindu essence to it. These wells were specially the place for women who used to perform their daily chores here along with enjoying the coolness inside. These were places used for rituals and occasions also. In those days these kinds of wells served as cool shelters and stopovers of travelers.

A great place to know the modern history of India. It has a wall of history that clearly describes the important moments of freedom and British Rule. The architecture here is very nice. The ceiling of two domes there is fascinating. You will find lots of remains from world war ll. Ultimately it's a good place to explore the 20th century
Less visited than the one in Adalaj. Really nice to walk and look around this place and click pictures. There are bats in the darker areas of this place. Can also visit the nearby mosque though they will ask you for donation and tip what I didn't like...
A very interesting and historically astonishing place in ahmedabad.. The location is not too far from station, but a little longer drive from the airport. Its a very old mosque and stepwell built with extreme delicate craftsmanship and intricate details.. Photography is allowed and the time we visited, we were the only ones in the whole place so there's never a lot of crowd. A caretaker of the mosque had given us detailed tour of the whole area. Overall it's a very beautiful to visit regardless of your interest in history..
Another nice step well of Gujarat, which one should must visit. The mosque and Masjid as very well maintained while step well need more cleaness and maintenance. It's really nice historic place to visit.
It's awesome place for photography but not maintained well . Being the monument of national importance It could have been maintained properly.
