Good place to visit

Adalaj step well. It's made by Mohammad Degado around 1499 and a place for one time visit. You reach this place easily from Ahmedabad and Gandhinagar. There is allowed everything like Mobile, camera, etc and there are two good restaurants nearby. So you can go and click some photos and enjoy. Thank you.

Worth a visit

Adalaj comes on the way to Gandhinagar from Ahmedabad. It's a pretty small historical step well next to a nice garden. The detail of architecture is awe striking. As you step lower and lower, it gets a little cooler due to the water base in the end. It's a wonder how people in the past could design such intricate buildings. Worth a visit.

Old and traditional architecture to cherish!

Please be ready to encounter the loud echos of your voice in this beautiful and antique stepwell where you would find traditional architecture in every part of this well. There's a garden where you can sit and relax.
