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.

  • Beautiful place to visit.. Stunned by the sculpted interiors. wish the government could fund for its maintenance then it would have captured attraction of tourists

  • Ancient beauty.. Government should maintain these. It's beautiful and amaze us with its architecture.

  • Such an awesome place to visit... Historical and very ancient... It's equally good as Adalaj vav and of great significance... There's a direct entry through stairs from front entrance and two more spiral staircase entrances on both the sides... Not on the main road but can park few vehicles outside... Langore monkeys are seen here...

  • Nice place to visit b...however would advise not visiting that place alone.

  • Dada harir step well and mosque build in 1500 A.D by Sultan Mahmud shah Begadha, a Indo-islamic Architecture very beautiful Historical place and area was also very quiet... Love it.
