Mit fogunk csinálni?

Thanks to arid regions in western India, we see lot of stunning stepwells in the state of Gujarat and Rajasthan, which were built with the intention to store rainwater for a longer period of time. Of all these stepwells, the one at Adalaj is of unique importance. The stepwell’s intrinsic carving is not the only thing spectacular about it,
however the tale behind its creation is equally spectacular!

Built in 1499, the vav incorporates design elements from Hindu as well as Islamic architecture and is the only Vav with three different entrances that leads to main well. The beauty is still intact and the intrinsic details of the carvings have endured the time so beautifully that it still gives the feeling of amazement

We would visit Adalaj Stepwell, walking across the steps and discussing the story of love and tragic that made the stepwell happen. We will also discuss the art and architecture as we walk down the steps towards the main well, exploring the indo-sarcanic for art which was taking shape as these monument was getting built. Also, we would have some important events discussed and how they helped the vav become an important part of people's life, which is relevant even today. By that time we would find ourselves to the main plinth. Then after climbing back to the top steps, we gonna walk across the terrace of the vav and explore another way of looking at the vav.
Other things to note
Carry a bottle of water to keep yourself hydrated

I am an avid traveller. Meeting new travelers and hearing out their experiences is what I live for. I have travelled to 20 countries so far and lived in four of them. I love exploring new treks, trails which are lesser known and sharing them with like minded people. I strongly believe that life is all about experiences. The more experiences you collect, the more life you live.
At Ahmedabad, I conduct walking tours across amazing heritage corridors this city offers. I have heard enough of history about this place to curate an interesting walk across the heritage trail we walk at.

Nayan is really a very friendly and a caring host. He is exactly what we needed when we booked an experience. He walked through all minute details of the stepwell, its history, cultural significance, its architecture and its current relevance. We were intensely lost into the experience, were taken back into the time when India was considered as golden sparrow of the world. The kids with us specially enjoyed the experience the most and Nayan was extremely patient and informative in answering all their random questions. While we booked this on the last day of our stay in Ahmedabad, however I am certainly looking forward to come back and enjoy other experiences of yours.

Nayan is a very well experienced and thoughtful host. We loved the way he created a build up about history of world, then India, then Gujarat, then Ahmedabad and finally we got to know about Adalaj. I have been to the stepwell before but with the current experience, I could more connect with the monument and the city. If you are planning to come to Adalaj Stepwell, I would recommend to try your experience with Nayan only. Perfect host he is!
