Chand Baoli Step Well - Review
The Abhaneri Step Well is an exclusive tourism venue of Jaipur, situated in Abha Nagri. It features the exceptional invention of collecting and preserving rain water for drinking and fodder during the unfavourable conditions of drought. The most famous among the step wells, as well as the largest and deepest, is the Chand Baori. The walls and steps of the well are exotically adorned with engravings and sculptures.
The wells also acted as the reservoirs of drinking water along with separate enclosures for providing bathing facilities to the visitors of the Harsh Mata Temple, which is situated in the frontal premises of the Chand Baori. The temple is regarded as the abode of the Harsh Mata- The regional Goddess of Happiness and Joy. The main characteristic feature of the Abhaneri Baori Step Well is the distribution of the steps into three categories, and each flight of steps being divided and arranged into stories.

Chand Baoli Step Well, Jaipur Reviews
An amazing place to visit. The building of this so long ago and how well it has lasted throughout the last 1000+ years in amazing. Not to mention the practicality of it. Definately worth a visit if you are in the area, and as it is part of the Golden Triangle Tourist Route, it's not out of the way.
Great place to go... One of the major attraction for tourists from across the world. There is an ancient temple opposite this place which tells you stories of invasion. Mesmerising structure showing great indian architecture. In summer this place remains very hot... Advised to visit in winter.
Great spot to stop on way to Jaipur from Agra or other way. Great architecture and peaceful sight to see. A very beautiful temple stands close to it. Soon you have to pay an entrance fee to visit.
An amazing step well. Soon they will start charging the entry fees, which is free as of now. But regardless, its a must visit. Do read its history on internet, n if you are an avid Hollywood fan, its reference in movies.
Good place to visit. But its far from the main city, Jaipur. Need 2 hours of traveling. The barricades have been placed now, so you can't go down near the water. There is temple very near to bawri where you may visit.
