Chand Baori Step Well


Chand Baori Step Well


  • Chand Baori is among the biggest and deepest stepwells near Jaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan.
  • Chand Baori was built in the 9th century by King Chanda to provide clean ground water to the local population, at the bottom of the well. The well’s steps made it easier for villagers to step down and get water. Chand Baori was a common gathering spot particularly during hot weather when the temperature at the well’s bottom would be several degrees lower compared to that at surface. 
  • The well has 3,500 narrow steps descending down twelve stories. Chand Baori is maintained by the Archeological Survey of India and is no more an active well. The water at the bottom of the well is not safe to drink. 
  • Building of stepwells was a necessity because of northern India’s hot summers.
