Dada Hari Ni Vav - Review
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.

Dada Hari Ni Vav, Ahmedabad Reviews
Peaceful place... This is a quiet place. There is also a mosque and a tomb. Baawadi is also very good. The workmanship on the stone is tremendous. In the end there is a well, but now it has dried up. Upon landing in the dry well, there is a very spectacular view on the top.
This place is easy to find and the mosque part is well maintained. However the well is left to the nature and no much maintenance tasks are being undertaken here. This well is actually deeper than Adalaj step well and spans for 5 levels under the ground. The path to the well is two ways, one being the traditional steps and there are also two spiral stairway to the bottom on both the sides of the well. There is a kid belonging to the mosque who can show you around. You cannot find any kind of refreshments or shops nearby so carry your own water or food if visiting.
This was a breathtaking tour of a monument, especially because we had the entire place to ourselves. This is not a well known location, and even the auto driver didn't seem to know the entrance. But the plus point of that was that the stepwell is not all that littered and you can take your time absorbing the rich history of the place.
This place is one of the best architecture of ancient times. It appears like a building, but when we get down to the bottom, then it looks like a beautiful well. It's really a marvellous architecture. But, this place is not well maintained. Despite being one of the beautiful architecture, there's no one to look after this. Still, I would recommend everyone to visit this place at least once, if you ever get chance to be in Ahmedabad.
This place has good historical value. The architecture of vav is marvelous. And maintain by local authorities. The nearby mosque is well maintained.
