Chand Baori

Chand Baori is a famous stepwell situated in the village of Abhaneri near Jaipur in the Indian state of Rajasthan.

Overview

It is located opposite Harshat Mata Temple and was constructed in 800 CE. Its 3500 narrow steps in 13 stories extend Шаблон:Convert into the ground, making it one of the deepest (and largest) stepwells in India. It has served as a location for films such as The Fall and The Dark Knight Rises.

History

Chand Baori was built by King Chanda of the Nikumbha Dynasty between 800 and 900 CE and was dedicated to Hashat Mata, Goddess of Joy and Happiness upon completion.

The state of Rajasthan is extremely arid, and the intent and final structure of Chand Baori was intended to conserve as much water as possible. At the bottom of the well, the air remains 5-6 degrees cooler than at the surface, and Chand Baori was used as a community gathering place for locals during periods of intense heat.
