About Dada Hari Ni Vav, Ahmedabad
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
Amazing to learn of such a fine piece of work done at stepwell .. place itself is nice but seems unattended. It is situated inside .. no much food / snack facility . Seems no focus around the place yet.. however, unless we go more, how focus will come so I recommend visit to this place
The architecture is of 1500 AD. The compound houses of stepwell and a mosque. It was very interesting to see the rich heritage of India. The step-well has been constructed so beautifully with intricate carvings throughout. It has about 4 floors, and there are two cute little staircases leading you to each floor Above and below.
Simply amazing. How our forefathers were well planned. Not only a great piece of engineering with sand stone, an artistic masterpiece too. Also the mosque attached makes it more exotic and attractive aesthetically. Seems like a bit ignored comparing with other places of interest in Ahmedabad. But if you love history and architecture a visit definitely counts.
Loved it. I thought visiting a stepwell would be quite boring but it turned out to be just the opposite. You're just amazed by how magnificent this place is. Not many people visit this so it's basically tourist free. Located just on the main road and there's not much parking space either. Although there's no sign or board indicating this place so there's a good chance that you'll miss this place if you're visiting for the first time.
Very beautiful architecture! ,but not preserved and maintained. Dam worth a visit.
