Ancient Stepwells of India
Built in the ninth century but reminiscent of an Escher drawing, Chand Baori is among the largest and most elaborate of India's many stepwells. The four-sided Chand Baori is 13 stories tall, 100 feet deep, and lined with 3,500 steps arranged in a spectacular zig-zag pattern. On one side of the well is a temple dedicated to the Hindu goddess Harsiddhi. Its intricate, multilevel facade overlooks a small pond of bright green water: a reminder of the magnificent structure's practical purpose. The construction dates to the 10th century and is dedicated to Harshat Mata, goddess of joy and happiness.
